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). 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 a fundamental aspect of the university's mission. Along with discovery-based research, Rutgers commercializes research through the transfer of new technology to industry, contributing to the economic development of New Jersey and the nation. Our 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 state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to each of our three campuses.
