Graduate Studies in Cell and Molecular Biology
The Graduate Program in Biology is a joint program between the departments of Biological Sciences at Rutgers-Newark and at the New Jersey Institute of technology (NJIT) and offers two degrees: the Master of Science (M.S.) degree, and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. Non-Degree (NOD) option is also available. The Program is arranged into three tracks, Cell and Molecular Biology, Ecology/Evolution and Neurobiology, each instructed by a core of faculty researchers.
Rutgers-Newark houses the Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) track, which provides graduate training in the following sub-disciplines:
Cancer Biology Cell Biology Cell Metabolism
Cellular Neuroscience Gastrointestinal Biology Epigenetics
Molecular Biology Neurodegeneration Stem Cell Biology
