Research Center in Minority Institutions (RCMi)
Today, City College is part of the City University of New York (CUNY), a system of nineteen senior and community colleges. City College, itself, consists of a College of Liberal Arts and Science and a complex of professional schools including Engineering, Architecture, Medicine, and Education. The Division of Science of the College of Liberal Arts and Science include the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Mathematics, and Physics.
All departments operate Masters’ programs on campus, while Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences and Physics have Ph.D. programs. In addition, the City College School of Engineering conducts on-campus Ph.D. programs in Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering and in Computer Science. Also, there is a large on-campus Ph.D. program in Psychology.The specific aims of our program continue to be the same. We propose to build the Center for the Study of the Cellular and Molecular Basis of Development (CSCMBD) at City College into a center of research excellence with a significantly higher level of national recognition, to enable CCNY faculty and graduates to become considerably more competitive in obtaining grants in biomedical research areas of the Public Health Service (PHS) mission, and to further enhance the biomedical research-training opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students at CCNY.
