The mission of NYU-ECNU Center for Computational Chemistry at NYU Shanghai (the Center) is to provide a unique platform for world-class research, for training of students and young scientists, and for international collaboration in the broadly defined areas of computational chemistry. The Center has a core group of outstanding faculty members from New York University, East China Normal University and Shanghai New York University who are conducting frontier research in various fields of computational chemistry, biology and material sciences.
The brand new NYU Shanghai academic building will be completed in Summer 2014. Located on Century Avenue in Pudong, the new building includes a 300-seat auditorium for future conferences, forums and summer schools of NYU Shanghai.
