Welcome to the Division of Life Sciences
The Division of Life Sciences coordinates, fosters, and integrates the instructional and research activities of a broad range of faculty with interests in the biological sciences. The principal units of the Division include four departments, Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Genetics, Kinesiology and Health, and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. The Division also supports several University-wide research centers including the W.M. Keck for Collaborative Neuroscience, the Stem Cycle Institute of New Jersey, and the Center for Exercise and Aging.
The Division of Life Sciences also has collaborations with the Center for Integrative Proteomics, Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine, The Waksman Institute, the State-wide High Field NMR Facility, as well as the basic and clinical sciences departments of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
The primary goal of the Division is to provide a high caliber of interdisciplinary teaching and research in the life sciences as we train the next generation of teachers, researchers, and health-care professionals.
