City College Center for Discovery and Innovation

City College Center for Discovery and Innovation
The state-of-the art facility is a magnet for international researchers and learning for students, faculty, and scientists working across multiple disciplines.

The City College Center for Discovery and Innovation opened in Fall 2014 and features approximately 200,000 square feet of space for advanced research in key interdisciplinary fields. The facility is a magnet for regional, national and international researchers and an academic hub of learning for students and faculty. The new research center and pedestrian plaza serve as a gateway to the south campus of City College, which also features the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center.

The Center for Discovery and Innovation is a futuristic architectural vision that reflects the research inside its laboratories.  The interiors have been designed for optimal research functionality and to facilitate collaboration between all who work there.

Expanding upon the college’s vision of strengthening academics through interdisciplinary study and research, five major innovative fields are featured in the facility: Nanotechnology, Photonics, Structural Biology, Neuroscience and Environmental Sciences. The scientific and technological achievements at the City College Center for Discovery and Innovation improve environments, extend lives, and transform societies in New York City and around the world.

Designed by the architectural firm of Kohn, Pedersen and Fox, the City College Center for Discovery and Innovation builds upon our already stellar reputation as a major research campus and nexus for leading scientists.
