Joint Doctoral Training Program in Biomedical Engineering
Biomedical Engineering integrates engineering principles from physical, mathematical, chemical, and computational sciences with biomedical sciences to study medicine, behavior and health. The Biomedical Engineering program combines the strengths of the Rutgers School of Graduate Studies at the Newark Health Science Campus with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) to meet the growing needs for biomedical engineers at the cutting edges of technology and innovation. A diverse faculty lead research projects in areas such as:

* Behavioral Neuroscience
* Bioinformatics
* Biomaterials
* Biomechanics and Device Design
* Biophysics
* Computational Modeling
* Drug Design
* Imaging and Image Processing
* Implant Materials and Technology
* Instrument Design

* Molecular and Cellular Engineering
* Nanotechnology
* Neuroscience
* Rehabilitation Engineering
* Sensors
* Signal Processing
* Stem Cells
* Tissue Engineering
* Translational Research

The program is truly integrative across the two Universities: from course work, to laboratory rotations, to collaborative projects and training.
