Modeling Future Climate

Understanding our planet's climate, and how it is changing, is growing increasingly urgent. But the task is so enormously complex that today's best computer models are still insufficient, almost primitive. At NYU Abu Dhabi's Center for Prototype Climate Modeling (CPCM), mathematicians and scientists with several specialties are working together on the problem.

NYUAD Research Group Focuses on Nanoparticles for Delivery of Cancer Treatment

A defining feature of NYU Abu Dhabi Assistant Professor of Chemistry Ali Trabolsi's office is the large whiteboard that looms on the wall. Decked in hexagons, subscripts, curt lines, and symbols, he uses this simple technology to illustrate the makeup of the complex chemical structures he and his team study at the University's Center for Science and Engineering.
