Rutgers is a leading national research university, with a depth and breadth of research activity and resources unparalleled in New Jersey. With the establishment of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS), Rutgers moves to new heights and now stands as one of America’s largest, most comprehensive university-based centers for studying and improving human health and health care. Through basic, translational, and clinical research—spanning the life sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences—we advance knowledge and technology that drive education, medical breakthroughs, and economic development, while improving lives at home and in the global community.
Led by the university’s faculty, research is supported by staff in many units. The Office of Research and Economic Development facilitates grant applications, research alliances, technology commercialization, and relationships among faculty and the business community.
Many research activities within Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences are coordinated by the individual schools.
These primary Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences research centers and institutes work closely with RBHS and other schools.
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs offers a wide variety of services to help faculty and staff apply for grants. Our grant specialists can help you interpret sponsor guidelines and instructions, assist in budget development and ensure that applications and awards meet compliance requirements. ORSP also provides sign off on submissions, accepts incoming awards, and negotiates grant-related agreements, including sub-awards.
