Funding

The City College of New York Department of Biomedical Engineering has an excellent track-record in generating funding for basic research and translational research, and in support of its mission to increase diversity in medical research.

We have received developmental grants (each greater than $1 million) from the Whitaker Foundation, The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, and educational grants from the Sloan Foundation, Howard Hughes Foundation, NASA, NSF, and NIH.

CCNY received three $1 million Special Opportunity Awards from the Whitaker Foundation to help build the biomedical engineering program. Recent funding from the Wallace Coulter Foundation helped to build state-of-the-art departmental laboratories and includes a recently awarded $2.5 million challenge grant. The department’s NIH education award, a $2.2 million grant for minority undergraduate education in the life sciences, was recently renewed.
