Reducing a barrier that generally hinders the easy generation of new molecules, a team led by City College of New York chemist Mahesh K. Lakshman has devised a method to cleave generally inert bonds to allow the formation of new ones. The study is the cover story in the journal ACS Catalysis published by the American Chemical Society.
Thanks to a 2016 National Endowment for the Humanities award, Václav Paris, assistant professor of English at The City College of New York, is spending this semester working on a book on early 20th-century modernist prose.
Baruch College Professor Aloke (Al) Ghosh has earned a Fulbright Distinguished Chair Award for research in Finland and other European countries.
With the growing legalization of medical marijuana, some brand-new research on cannabis might be of particular interest to the public.
President Barack Obama named College of Staten Island (CSI) Associate Professor of Psychology Dr. Daniel McCloskey a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, granting him the U.S. government’s highest award for scientists and engineers in the early stages of their independent research careers.
As part of a partnership dedicated to advancing urban health research, the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy and NYC Department of Health have released new population health data from the 2013-2014 NYC Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NYC HANES). The NYC HANES website now contains direct access to analytic datasets, codebooks, sample […]
A group of campus scientists took a leap forward in the bioengineering field by redesigning a bacterial nanocompartment that can facilitate chemical reactions and could have substantial effects on the field of agriculture.
Dr. Joseph Rachlin, Lehman’s director of the Laboratory for Marine and Estuarine Research and interim associate provost and dean for research, was honored on November 7th with the “Great Work Award” for his nearly five decades of restoration work and research on the Bronx, Sawmill, Hudson and East Rivers.

Understanding nanoscale heat flow is critical in the design of integrated electronic devices and in the development of materials for thermal insulation and thermoelectric energy recovery. While several techniques are currently available to observe heat transport over macroscopic distances, there is a need for new methods capable of revealing the dynamics of heat flow with nanometer resolution.
