The Office of Research and Economic Development provides services universitywide to support the faculty’s research and strategically leads economic development activities through public-private partnerships.

The office is led by Christopher J. Molloy, Ph.D., R.Ph., senior vice president for research and economic development (bio), who successfully directed the Rutgers-UMDNJ integration (more here). Among his responsibilities are oversight and strategic planning for Rutgers’ $744 million in annual research expenditures and leading the many institutional offices and resources supporting the university’s research and economic development activities.

Research is fundamental to the university's mission and enhances its education and service programs. At the undergraduate and graduate levels, education is delivered by faculty directly engaged in the discovery of new knowledge. Our faculty, staff, and students bring their expertise to communities across New Jersey, the nation, and the world.

Along with discovery-based research, Rutgers increasingly engages in commercialization of research through the transfer of new technology to industry, contributing to the economic development of New Jersey and the nation. From the discovery of streptomycin--the cure for tuberculosis--to the technology behind, Rutgers continues to make a tremendous impact in the commercial world.

The university's research is sponsored by federal and state agencies, corporations, and foundations, which provides research experiences for undergraduates, support for graduate assistants and postdoctoral researchers, and brings state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to each of our three campuses.
