Twenty-one New York University students and recent alumni have been selected as Fulbright Scholars for 2018-19—more than twice the number selected five years ago.
NYU has received a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation for a three-year project entitled “Port Cities Environments in Global Asia,” which is a collaborative research and education initiative involving NYU faculty in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai.
Led by NYU Steinhardt professor Hirokazu Yoshikawa, Global TIES for Children will implement an evidence-based research and evaluation program to measure the success of Sesame and IRC’s educational work supporting children and families in the Middle East.
Two NYU students and two of the university’s alumni have been selected as 2017 Schwarzman Scholars, an honor that will support master’s degree study at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
Three NYU students representing two countries, Canada and the United Arab Emirates, have been selected as Rhodes Scholars: Dubai Abulhoul (UAE) and Guillaume Sylvain (Canada), seniors at NYU Abu Dhabi, and Melissa Godin (Canada), a senior in NYU’s Global Liberal Studies Program.
Different groups of neurons program biological clocks to orchestrate our behaviors by sending messages in a unidirectional manner downstream, a team of biologists has found.
NYU Abu Dhabi researchers have developed a map of genetic changes across the genome of date palms. They have also established genetic differences between Middle Eastern and North African date palms, an important discovery that sheds light on that long elusive question.
New York University today announces the creation of Global TIES for Children: Transforming Intervention Effectiveness and Scale, an international research center that designs, evaluates, and advises on programs and policies to improve the lives of children and youth in the most vulnerable regions across the globe.
NYU biologists have uncovered new ways our biological clock’s neurons use electrical activity to help keep behavioral rhythms in order. The findings, which appear in the journal Current Biology, also point to fresh directions for exploring sleep disorders and related afflictions.
