New York Genome Center 'Poised to Make Genomic Medicine a Reality'

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Nov 22, 2011

As early as February of 2012, project organizers plan on opening the New York Genome Center, a new center for genomics and medicine, in Manhattan. NYGC’s collaborating members include a number of public and private contributors, among them 11 academic institutions, private philanthropists, technology collaborators, the New York City Economic Corporation and the New York City Investment Fund. In total, contributing members have donated $120 million to the project so far.

Environmental Science Major Topic in NYC Campus Competition

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Nov 15, 2011

In the beginning of August, we published an article about Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s plan to encourage 27 interested universities to come up with innovative ideas for high-tech campuses and compete for space in one of three areas in New York City. While Manhattan local news website  reports that at an unrelated press conference, Mayor Bloomberg said he is not rejecting the idea that more than one school may win the competition, he also said that up to $100 million in public funding for the project is on the line, so the city will probably work with just one school to begin with.

Columbia University Offers Innovative Solution to NYC Runoff

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Jul 12, 2011

       A common problem in many urban areas, such as New York City, is the overflow of the city's sewer systems due to storm water runoff. Compared to rural areas, where most of the rainwater can easily percolate raw and uncovered earth to return to groundwater aquifers, cities often encounter the issue of flooding and excess runoff due to an enormous amount of paved areas, leaving little room for the absorption of rain and other runoffs into the ground. This flooding is normally controlled by storm drains and sewage systems.
