Centers and Institutes

BioMaPS Institute

The BioMaPS Institute's mission is to promote research and education at the interface between the Biological, Mathematical, and Physical Sciences; to stimulate interactions among experimentalists and theoreticians working on problems in quantitative biology; and to train a new generation of scientists using the latest computational and modeling tools.

CCB affiliated institute faculty: Jean Baum, Helen Berman, David Case, Wilma Olson

For more information go to the Center for Quantitative Biology website.

Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine (CABM)

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.

Affiliated CCB Faculty: Edward Arnold, Joseph Marcotrigiano.

Center for Integrative Proteomics Research

Institute for Advanced Materials, Devices and Nanotechnology (IAMDN)

Laboratory for Surface Modification (LSM)

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.

Affiliated CCB Faculty: Eric Garfunkel, Martha Greenblatt, Gene Hall, Jane Hinch

New Jersey Center for Biomaterials

The New Jersey Center for Biomaterials is one of the leading academic research groups to address the challenges of biomaterials discovery and optimization through a rational approach. The Center coordinates a network of clinical, technical and academic resources, including partnerships with industry, to develop the next generation of biomaterials.

Affiliated CCB Faculty: Joachim Kohn

Nucleic Acid Database Project (NDB)

The NDB is a resource for nucleic acid research and education. The NDB assembles and distributes information about the three-dimensional structures of nucleic acids through a variety of resources, including a searchable database, Atlas, and software. The NDB was founded in 1992 by Helen M. Berman, Rutgers University, Wilma K. Olson, Rutgers University, and David Beveridge, Wesleyan University.

Affiliated CCB Faculty: Helen Berman (Director), Wilma Olson (Co-founder)

RCSB Protein Data Bank

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).

Affiliated CCB Faculty: Helen Berman (Director)

Rutgers Catalysis Research Center (RCRC)

Rutgers Energy Institute (REI)

Waksman Institute of Microbiology

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.

Affiliated CCB Faculty: Helen Berman, Richard Ebright
