Through the RCMI initiative The City College of New York created the Center for the Study of the Cellular and Molecular Basis of Development (CSCMBD). The Center, built on the existing strengths of the College in the RCMI-supported areas, was enriched by the addition of new research active faculty members. There are now 26 researchers participating in the Center grouped in three scientific areas: (Area Group I) Biomolecular Structure and Function, (Area Group II) Cancer, (Area Group III) Neurobiology and (Area Group IV) Immunology. Major equipment purchases and the creation of central facilities further enhanced the activity within the Center.
