CABM was established in 1985 to advance knowledge in the life sciences for the improvement of human health. CABM is jointly administered by the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and by Rutgers. Faculty conduct basic research in cell and developmental biology, molecular genetics, and structural biology to improve understanding of fundamental life processes. CABM researchers interact with clinical scientists to bring laboratory discoveries rapidly to patient care.
The IQB brings basic and applied researchers together with clinicians pursuing grand challenges in biomedical research using quantitative tools of measurement and analysis from chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, and statistics. The Institute is also the home to an interdisciplinary graduate program committed to training the next generation of researchers expert in the quantitative sciences for productive and rewarding careers at the interface with biology and medicine.
The Laboratory for Biomaterials Research, previously under the direction of Dr. Kohn, is a leader in the field of combinatorial polymer biomaterials science and draws on chemistry, materials science, biology and engineering studies to develop new biomaterials. LBR's research on computational materials design aims to optimize the development of biomaterials and prototype devices to fulfill the requirements of novel regenerative implants.
The LSM is a multidisciplinary endeavor, which provides a focus for research in basic and applied studies of high technology surfaces and interfaces. LSM brings together over 20 faculty in different departments (Physics and Astronomy, Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Ceramics and Materials Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Chemical Engineering). In addition, there are over 50 visiting scientists, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students involved in various research projects.
The Protein Data Bank (PDB) is an information portal for researchers and students interested in structural biology. At its center is the PDB archive -- the single international repository for the processing and distribution of experimentally determined three-dimensional macromolecular structure data. The Protein Data Bank (PDB) is operated by Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego -- two members of the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB).

The Rutgers Energy Institute is engaged in four principal areas of activity: education of undergraduate and graduate students; pioneering research; outreach to the community to share information and engage the public; and policy advice to government, business, and civic leaders who require current knowledge about energy use, alternatives, and innovations to guide decision-making and public planning.
The Waksman Institute's mission today is to conduct research in microbial molecular genetics, developmental molecular genetics, plant molecular genetics, and structural and computational biology. It also is a catalyst for general university initiatives, including undergraduate and graduate education, as well as a life science infrastructure, and a public service function for the State of New Jersey.
