Convening meetings, workshops, seminars, and public programs is a key part of the mission at the Advanced Science Research Center at the Graduate Center, CUNY, promoting collaboration between campus-based faculty, ASRC faculty, theorists, and experimentalists across New York City.
See our highlighted events and a full event calendar below.
Please join us for the inaugural symposium of the ASRC Neuroscience Initiative. The focus of the symposium will be on myelin and glial cells.
The human nervous system is composed of several types of cells, including neurons and glial cells, which communicate with each other and guarantee proper execution of complex behaviors.
This daylong symposium will highlight research on glial cells (e.g., microglia, astrocyte, and oligodendrocytes) and myelin, the specialized glial cell membrane surrounding neuronal processes and responsible for metabolic support and fast transmission of information.
The program will include four sessions and feature presentations covering:
- molecular and cellular pathways responsible for the formation of myelin during development,
- mechanisms of myelin repair,
- induced pluripotent stem cells, and
- the cross talk between oligodendrocyte lineage cells and other cell types.
Researchers and scientists from throughout CUNY, New York City, and beyond are invited to visit the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York for our Second Annual Open House on Thursday, November 16, 2017.
At this event, guests will be able to:
- Take tours of our 10 active core facilities — including our 5,000 square-foot cleanroom/nanofabrication facility and new MRI facility — led by our expert research faculty;
- Get involved at the ASRC by becoming a core facility user or an affiliate faculty member;
- Meet with representatives from our research initiatives to discuss their work and current interdisciplinary collaborations;
- Sign up to attend future seminars, symposia, workshops, and conferences planned throughout the academic term;
- Hear from current core facility users — ranging from undergraduate students to research scientists at major corporations — about how the ASRC is supporting their work; and
- Learn how to apply for research funding via the ASRC Seed Grant Program.
We also encourage ASRC students, core facility users, faculty affiliates, and Seed Grant awardees to showcase their work by submitting posters for our second interdisciplinary poster session.
