The Center for Science and Society

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 a wide variety of researchers and practitioners in the human, social, and natural sciences from around Columbia’s campus and the New York City metropolitan area to support interdisciplinary research, teaching, and outreach about the roles of science, technology, medicine, and public health in past and present societies. The Center also works to enhance public understanding of science in relation to pressing social concerns.

The Center currently supports six 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.
