Welcome to the ASRC Nanoscience Initiative, New York City’s newest, state-of-the-art research center for cross-disciplinary nanoscience. Enabled through major investment in laboratory infrastructure and already attracting world-class researchers, the ASRC Nanoscience Initiative is set to transform research opportunities in nanoscience across CUNY and New York City. Please contact us if you would like to know more.
The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center, located in Manhattan, brings the nation’s largest urban public university to a landmark moment in its decade-long, multibillion-dollar commitment to innovative science. The $350-million, 200,000-square-foot world-class center will focus CUNY initiatives in five dynamic fields of applied science: Nanotechnology, Photonics, Structural Biology, Neuroscience and Environmental Sciences.
Dr. Elisa Riedo, Professor of Physics at the City University of New York’s Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC), and a team of international scientists recently investigated the interaction between atomically thin layers in two-dimensional materials, the study of which appeared in June in Nature Materials magazine. “Researchers are seeking to understand two-dimensional materials because of […]
The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) hosted the ASRC Nanoscience Initiative’s Soft Nano Symposium on June 18th. Scientists from The City University of New York (CUNY), New York University, Columbia University and other research institutions on the East Coast presented their latest research to the more than 100 attendees hailing from across the country. […]
The City University of New York’s Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) has appointed Dr. Elisa Riedo as Professor of Physics within the Nanoscience Initiative. Riedo, who will also hold a professorship at the department of physics at The City College of New York, specializes in fundamental and applied aspects of nanoscale experimental science. She is […]
The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center recently named Tong Wang, PhD, as the manager of its Imaging Facility. Wang, who joined the ASRC from Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, specializes in multi-dimensional nanomaterial fabrication and characterization. He also has research interests in bio-inspired artificial molecular assemblies at nanometer scale, DNA nanostructure-based stimuli-responsive targeted drug […]
The Nanoscience Initiative of The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) has announced the latest in a series of events, which will focus on Soft Nano, at 9am on Thursday, June 18th at the ASRC. Researchers from the Northeast corridor will present their research on soft nanoscale materials and there will be poster sessions and […]
The Nanoscience Initiative of The City University of New York Advanced Science Research Center have announced their first in a series of events. Nanoscience NY is a one-day free symposium for researchers in the NYC area being held on Feb 19th 2015, 9.00 am – 19.00 pm. This day will include a number of invited […]
Peptides are the building blocks of living systems and they have tremendous potential as building blocks for new materials. The function of peptides is dictated by a chemical alphabet of 20 letters in specific sequence. The number of possible sequences is huge, so it is not possible to test them all, which has limited the […]
The ASRC is opening its doors to CUNY faculty and staff on Thursday Nov 20th 2014. Please remember to register for your place at the ASRC Town Hall Meeting. Full event details here.
Dr. Jang’s latest paper, Generalized Master Equation with Non-Markovian Multichromophoric Förster Resonance Energy Transfer for Modular Exciton Densities, was published on October 31st 2014 in Physical Review Letters. Read his latest article here.
After a decade of planning, the ASRC building has been completed. Today, the first researchers of the Nanoscience Initiative, under direction of Dr Rein Ulijn, have moved into the building.

The Nanoscience Initative will welcome researchers from New York City to the ASRC. This one day conference will include talks by leading nanoscience researchers in the city and will be headlined by Professor Ned Seeman, NYU. There will be presentations from ASRC and CUNY researchers, tours of the facility and networking opportunities. More information coming soon.
20 November 2014
The ASRC will open its doors to CUNY faculty from across the city of New York. The day will include presentations from the directors, tours of the facilities and opportunities to network with colleagues from across CUNY.
