Keep up with these climate and sustainability research groups at Drexel:
Urban Climate Change Research Network – North American Hub
Drexel is home to the Urban Climate Change Research Network – North American Hub, a global consortium of climate researchers dedicated to the analysis of climate change mitigation and adaptation from an urban perspective.
Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast
Drexel researchers are part of the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN), a NOAA Regional Integrated Science and Assessment program.
Sustainable Water Resource Engineering Lab
The Sustainable Water Resource Engineering Lab conducts research at the intersection of climate change, stormwater management and urban infrastructure.
Urban Health Collaborative
The Urban Health Collaborative partners with communities, policy makers, and other stakeholders to improve urban health, reduce health inequalities, and promote environmental sustainability, among other research initiatives.
The Center for Science, Technology and Society (STS)
STS brings together faculty and students who investigate the social dimensions of technology, medicine and science. Faculty in a range of fields — anthropology, criminal justice, history, information sciences, philosophy, political science, public health and sociology — conduct original research on the impact of new technologies, medical categories and scientific knowledge. They also investigate why some technologies or scientific knowledge are adopted while others are not.
Center for Systematic Biology and Evolution
The Academy of Natural Sciences’ Center for Systematic Biology and Evolution houses one of the world’s top natural history collections, with over 19 million specimens of plants and animals from around the world. These collections represent a veritable library of life on earth and are of international significance. Scientists in the Center conduct research into biodiversity, ecology, evolution, molecular systematics and paleontology. Curators actively add to the collections each year and loan out thousands of specimens to assist scientists in their world around the world.
Patrick Center for Environmental Research
The Academy of Natural Sciences’ Patrick Center for Environmental Research has been devoted to understanding, protecting, and restoring the health of watersheds since 1947. It consists of a multidisciplinary group of environmental scientists and engineers focused on understanding aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems and applying this knowledge to assess ecosystem health and develop watershed-level strategies for enhancing environmental quality. The Patrick Center also works with diverse stakeholders, including government, community groups, industry and environmental organizations to improve environmental stewardship.
