The NIH supported Rutgers Biotechnology Training Program, directed by Professors Martin Yarmush and Ann Stock, has been renewed for its seventh consecutive five-year cycle of funding. The $2.1 NIH-NIGMS T32 grant provides stipend and tuition support for 10 predoctoral fellows and is matched by institutional sources at both Rutgers and Industry. The research programs of the training faculty cover a broad spectrum of problems, which fall under two major interdisciplinary research thrusts: 1) Genomics, Proteomics and Structural Biology and 2) Tissue Engineering, Regenerative Medicine, and Drug Delivery.  The Biotechnology Training Program was established in 1989 as a joint initiative between CABM and the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
