The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research presents the CUNY Advanced Science Seminar (CASS) series focusing on five key and emerging science flagship disciplines at CUNY: nanoscience, photonics, environmental science, structural biology, and neuroscience. The seminars feature leaders in these fields, who spend a day at CUNY and meet with faculty and students. These disciplines are the focus of the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC), which is scheduled to open in 2014. For more information please visit the ASRC website
The Fall 2013 series will take the form of lunchtime seminars. Lunch will be provided.
