Office of Economic Development

"Rutgers research has enormous economic potential, which has grown even stronger with the expansion of our biomedical and health sciences portfolio. We want to build public-private partnerships that take full advantage of these resources and create jobs that stay in New Jersey. More than ever, Rutgers is and wants to be open for business."  -  Robert L. Barchi, M.D., Ph.D., President
