ButterflyNet—an integrative framework for comparative biology


Dr. David J. Lohman, assistant professor of biology at The City College of New York, and his colleagues received $2.5 million in grants from the National Science Foundation for a collaborative study to resolve the evolutionary history of all butterfly species. Entitled “ButterflyNet—an integrative framework for comparative biology,” the support is part of $12.3 million in NSF Genealogy of Life awards announced last week.

Lohman will lead a group of scientists from Georgetown University, Harvard University, the University of Florida and Yale University in the project.


Science Division at CCNY


The Division of Science at City College has a proud legacy and a proud future.  Ten Nobel Laureates studied science and mathematics at CCNY.  World-renowned physicists like Myriam Sarachik, who serves on the governing council of the National Academy of Sciences, and well-known author Michio Kaku teach our students, and distinguished professors conduct cutting edge research on everything from climate change to structural biology to sustainable energy, and everything in between.  City College students, even as undergraduates, have an unprecedented opportunity to work in these labs.  In the past 8 years the Division has produced two Rhodes Scholars and several Goldwater and Truman scholars, as well as graduates who have gone on to the most prestigious graduate schools, supported by grants from the National Science Foundation to pursue their research.

Science students at City College have a wide array of degree choices.  They enroll in Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees in the fields and programs listed below.  The PHD is offered jointly by the City University of New York and City College in the laboratory-based sciences: biology, biochemistry, chemistry and physics.
