“Microbiome Profiles of Estuarine Sediment from New York’s East River: A Comparative Study of Three Restored Sites”

by Caitlin Lynch (Environmental Science major). The work was done as part of the CRSP program at LaGuardia Community College/CUNY, under the supervision of Dr. Lucia Fuentes.

Caitlin explores the microbial diversity within the estuarine sediments of New York’s East River, comparing three different restoration sites: Hunters Point Park, Bushwick Inlet Park, and Newtown Creek.

“Effects of Climate Change on Human Health”

In this research, LaGuardia student Sara El Houzaly and Dr. Richa Gupta unveil the profound health implications of our warming planet. Their research uncovers how climatic shifts intensify respiratory, waterborne, and vector-borne diseases, and exacerbate cardiovascular conditions and allergies. The authors make a compelling case for urgent mapping of emerging health risks and strategic public health planning to tackle the looming health crises instigated by climate change.
