Research: Making Discoveries, Creating Change
Treating NeuroCOVID with Personalized MedTech
More than a year into the United States' experience of COVID-19, knowledge is growing of lingering effects that may follow the virus' acute phase. Professor of Biomedical Engineering Marom Bikson at CCNY's Grove School of Engineering is leading research on innovative medical technology for treating NeuroCOVID, a debilitating second stage that may include vertigo, loss of smell, headaches, fatigue, irritability, anxiety and depression. The treatment under development "is truly personalized medicine," Bikson notes, "with the ability for physicians to adjust therapy in real time and monitor patient progress at home with rigor usually reserved for advanced medical centers."

Students in Action

I Am CCNY: Maliha Tabassum, Class of 2021
Majors: Computer Science and Mathematics, because there is inadequate female representation in technology and math.
CCNY Highlights: Tutoring; participating in the CCNY Zahn Innovation Center competition, where our group developed Glucodot, a noninvasive glucose-monitoring device to help people who have diabetes; and the Math Club, where I serve as president, for leadership skills and community kinship.
CCNY Career Inspiration: I participated in an independent study last spring, where I learned a new programming language, HASKELL. That experience opened a new world of opportunities and helped me define my career goal of becoming a full-time researcher. I am also thinking about joining academia as a professor.

Met Welcomes First Class of Adrienne Arsht Interns
The Metropolitan Museum of Art recently launched a new paid internship program named in recognition of business leader and impact philanthropist Adrienne Arsht's gift of $5 million. With this gift, all of the museum's undergraduate and graduate internships are now fully paid. The museum received a 200% increase in applications for the spring 2021 program. Among the 28 inaugural Adrienne Arsht Interns is Pilar Ferrer, a student in CCNY's MA in Art History program. Throughout the course of the 10-week, part-time internship, Ferrer will gain mentorship and experience working with members of the museum's Egyptian Art department.

Join Us in Remembering Michael Sorkin
What would Michael Sorkin call on us to do next? This question will animate "Ninety Minutes with Michael," a virtual gathering on March 26 in memory of the late distinguished professor at CCNY's Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture and celebrated urbanist, architect and activist. All are welcome to join international colleagues and Sorkin's widow, Joan Copjec, in celebrating Sorkin's lasting impact and inspiration.
