The Center for Science and Society at Columbia University is the interdisciplinary home of the Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience program.
the Center for Science and Society brings together researchers, scholars, and practitioners in the natural and social sciences, humanities, law, medicine, and the arts to engage in interdisciplinary research, teaching, and outreach. The Center aims to break down traditional disciplinary silos, create new paradigms of interdisciplinary training and collaboration, and enhance public understanding of science in relation to pressing social concerns.
The Center currently supports seven Research Clusters and organizes a variety of cross-disciplinary conferences, workshops and public events throughout the year. The Center also provides funding for student seed grants in science and society as well as interdisciplinary course development grants to faculty from across the University.
