NJIT’s Department of Biological Sciences is federated with Rutgers University-Newark, an affiliation that offers comprehensive opportunities for study and research, with diplomas issued jointly by NJIT and Rutgers. Students thus benefit from the best of both universities. NJIT emphasizes the quantitative and technical aspects of biology, while the focus at Rutgers is on the cellular and molecular aspects of biology, as well as ecology and evolution. Ample opportunities to participate in research at the undergraduate and graduate levels include neural-network function, neuro-immunology, waves and diffusion of ions in the brain, respiratory physiology, population dynamics, and global climate and ecosystem change.
