The Otto H. York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science (YCEES) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) offers core laboratory facilities as a resource for the university and for contract research. It has been the home of many interdisciplinary research programs and initiatives. The York Center was the first building in the nation especially 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, particle engineering, microfluidics, membrane science, environmental science and engineering, and biomedical engineering.
Researchers from Chemistry, Environmental Science, Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Material Science and Pharmaceutical Engineering have laboratories in the Center. The core facilities comprise of state of the art instrumentation in microcopy, mass spectrometry, environmental measurements and material characterization. The Center also houses the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center on Structured Particulates. The faculty research projects at the York Center are funded with grants from NSF, NIH, NASA, NIEHS, DOD, and leading industries. More details on the core facilities and faculty laboratories can be found in the presentations below.
