NYU Abu Dhabi scientists are developing sophisticated computer models to improve climate prediction.
- Campus Life
NYU Abu Dhabi has established scientific centers, labs, and special projects that address issues of local, regional, and global significance such as predicting sea level change, better understanding of Arabian Gulf ecosystems, and improving public health in the UAE.
Significant investments have been made in research equipment and instrumentation, with core facilities established in critical research areas like imaging and microscopy, genetic sequencing, and materials science. NYUAD's research program continues to evolve, thus helping Abu Dhabi become a recognized world center for scientific discovery and innovation.
The increasingly interdisciplinary nature of modern scientific research requires that biologists, chemists, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and physicists have a fundamental understanding of one another's areas. It is important for students engaged in these areas to understand and experience multiple scientific disciplines and their interrelationships.
Scientific research from NYUAD will help determine if the collapse of the Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica will start in the next few decades or centuries.
