PhD Training Program in Biotechnology

The PhD Training Program in Biotechnology at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey was established in 1989. It is one of the select group of such programs throughout the country funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH). The 2013-14 year marks the 24th year of NIH funding.

The aim of the program is to train a new breed of creative investigators who are able to translate basic science
discoveries into technology developments for the
needs of society, government, and industry.

Students in the program; (1) become
well educated within a single
biotechnology-related discipline (e.g.
biochemistry, chemical engineering,
molecular biology), and (2) become
fluent in the language, approaches
and principles of the biological and
physical sciences, in general.
