This program fosters collaboration between scientists and innovative artists. Through this program, artists and scientists are brought together, transcending traditional boundaries to create a space where creativity flourishes, enriching both fields. The NYUAD CGSB has a longstanding commitment to promoting interdisciplinary interactions, both within the academic community and with the broader public. Regularly hosting various events, including lectures, workshops, and Science Cafés, the center ensures the exchange of ideas and knowledge between the scholars involved with the program and the broader community.
For the academic year 2023-2024, Sam Nester joined as the first Artist-in-Residence.
Sam is a trumpet player, composer, and sound artist. His work at the CGSB focuses on the relationship between humans and the natural world and he is collaborating with NYUAD scientists and researchers on the creation of new sci-art projects that explore environmental adaptation and sustainability.
The primary goal of this program is to promote collaborative efforts among faculty members from various research centers and divisions at NYUAD. It aims to facilitate projects that are closely aligned with the CGSB's research focus and that bring together expertise from fields not typically represented within the CGSB.
This program is a prestigious one-year research development fellowship designed to support outstanding NYUAD graduating seniors who aspire to engage in research within a CGSB-affiliated laboratory. This program opens annually for applications. For detailed information about the program and the application process, please visit here.
For the academic year 2023-2024, Rita Fahmy joined Aashish Jha's lab as a post-graduation research fellow. Rita's participation in this program reflects our commitment to nurturing and supporting emerging talent in the field of research.
