The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) is a multidisciplinary facility specifically constructed to enable research in areas of nanoscience, photonics, structural biology, neuroscience and environmental science. The building and laboratory spaces were architecturally designed to allow for free movement and integration between disciplines to promote collaboration to facilitate true interdisciplinary research. The activities and state-of-the-art facilities available at the ASRC therefore uniquely place the site to host and support world-leading interdisciplinary research projects and supporting activities.
