Organization profile

Organization profile

The Otto H. York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science offers core research facilities as a resource for many interdisciplinary research programs and initiatives. The Center was the first building in the nation specifically constructed for cooperative public and private research in hazardous waste management. Today, it has diversified into many other areas, with research projects in nanotechnology, drug-delivery systems, particle engineering, microfluidics, membrane science, environmental science and engineering and biomedical engineering. Researchers from a range of disciplines — chemistry, environmental science, chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, material science and pharmaceutical engineering — have laboratories in the Center with extensive facilities in microscopy, mass spectrometry and material characterization. York Center research projects are funded with faculty grants from agencies such as the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the U.S. Department of Defense, as well as from leading industries. The new Life Science and Engineering Center associated with the York center will provide additional shared laboratory space for interdisciplinary projects. The York Center provides Faculty Instrument Usage Seed Grants (FIUSG) for the use of core laboratories in order to support faculty and to promote research across campus by providing free instrument time to pursue preliminary findings that will lead to the development of new ideas and grant proposals. The FIUSG initiative aims to support the launch of new initiatives in core and interdisciplinary emerging areas aligned with NJIT’s strategic interests.
