Leading the Charge
Rutgers’ brightest scientific minds spearhead vital research projects in a wide range of fields—from molecular biology and genetics to childhood studies, from nutritional science to artificial intelligence.
Donor support has enabled Rutgers researchers to create the Protein Data Bank, the worldwide repository for three-dimensional protein structures; to shed light on everything from earthquakes to fish migration through the Ocean Observatories Initiative; and to engineer a novel drone that can both swim and fly.
Your donation toward research initiatives at Rutgers helps make monumental achievements like these possible.
Tackling Real-World Issues
Science education at Rutgers doesn’t confine students to classrooms or rely only on textbook scenarios. Students join advanced faculty members and researchers in the field to focus on solving real-life problems, such as developing alternative energy sources and preserving the quality of our environment. This kind of experiential learning remains a top priority at Rutgers, and your gifts help sustain it into the future.
Building Leading Scientific Centers
Rutgers is proud to be the home of leading science centers, and the school continues to expand its capabilities through generous donor support. Your contributions assist in the building and maintenance of important facilities including the Coastal Resource Center, the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, the Rutgers Energy Institute, the W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience, and more.
In addition to world-class research laboratories and technologies, Rutgers is home to some of the most advanced science education programs in New Jersey. For instance, the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences has a deep commitment to a wide range of disciplines, including ecology, microbiology, meteorology, environmental economics, and more.
Advancing Shared Knowledge
Rutgers is honored to be part of a regional and global research network of top-tier educational institutions, and our commitment to research advancement has been recognized on a broad and prestigious scale.
Rutgers University–New Brunswick is a member of the Association of American Universities, a select group of 62 leading universities recognized for their outstanding research and educational programs. Rutgers–New Brunswick is also a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance, a consortium of research universities that pools resources and buying power to support invaluable research endeavors.
When you make a gift to support the sciences at Rutgers, you’re donating to a much bigger mission of shared discoveries that have the ability to change the world.
