Overview

Rutgers University Camden -- A Highly Respected Research University

The Rutgers University system has been ranked by "US News and World Report" as the most diverse campus in the nation, while the "Shanghai Jao Tong" survey rated Rutgers graduate programs 56th in the world. The "Wall Street Journal's" SmartMoney survey of US institutions of higher learning found Rutgers to be the 6th best value in America.

Rutgers University, Camden is part of Rutgers system and is located in southwest New Jersey, across from Philadelphia. Rutgers Camden is a medium-sized research university offering graduate degrees through 21 different programs.

Interdisciplinary Programs in Computational and Integrative Biology

The Rutgers Center for Computational and Integrative Biology (CCIB) researches biological systems using tools from biology, chemistry, physics, mathematical modeling, and computer science.

The graduate students work with faculty members at Rutgers' CCIB to create mathematical models of biological systems based on analysis of data from lab and field investigations and then adjust the model to improve its predictive value for experimental results. The CCIB receives research funding from multiple sources including the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Faculty members and graduate students pursue specific topics of inquiry, which include biofuels and sustainable energy development, biological rhythms (both circadian and ultradian), metagenomics, predictive toxicology and pharmacology, and the movements of large groups in complex systems.

The graduate program in computational and integrative biology offers master's and doctoral degrees.

The Master of Science (MS) in Computational and Integrative Biology

Master of Science (MS) in Computational and Integrative Biology candidates complete 30 semester hours of course material, including 12 hours of classes covering the essentials of biological chemistry, biomathematics, computer science, integrative biology, and biophysics.

All students complete a master's project and a terminal comprehensive examination.

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Program in Computational and Integrative Biology at Rutgers Camden Campus

PhD candidates come from a variety of backgrounds, with bachelor's or master's degrees in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics. The degree requires at least 30 hours of classroom credit, 40 hours of research credit, and an original research based dissertation.

Research at CCBI

The Rutgers Center for Computational and Integrative Biology received a Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) award from NSF to construct a high-level computational cluster to support modeling projects. Other research facilities include instrumentation that allows for basic and advanced procedures in cytological, ecological, environmental molecular, and physiological analysis.

Graduate students have access to a wide range of laboratory equipment including electrophoretic and DNA sequencing equipment, liquid chromatographic and TLC apparatuses, a gas chromatograph, phase-contrast and fluorescence microscopes, a scintillation counter, an ultracentrifuge and rotors, a transmission electron microscope, a Storm phosphorimager, ESA CoulArray HPLC, and a LECO elemental analyzer.

Esteemed Faculty Members in Computational and Integrative Biology at Rutgers Camden Campus

Students in computational and integrative biology at Rutgers interact with renowned professionals from many fields of science. Among the luminaries teaching in the program is Benedetto Piccoli, Joseph and Loretta Lopez Chair Professor of Mathematics. Dr. Piccoli is an expert on networks, partial differential equations, control systems, systems biology, and mathematical finance. Professor Piccoli is winner of the Fubini Prize, has spoken and published widely, and serves on the editorial board of numerous journals, including SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization and Networks and Heterogeneous Media.

Another noted researcher is Professor John Dighton, Director of the Pinelands Field Station. Professor Dighton studies nutrient cycling process at different levels of scale in forest soils, especially the role of fungi in these processes. He serves on the review board of the journals "Mycological Research," "Soil Biology," and "Bartonia," and has been a member of the USDA grant review panels for "Microbial Plant Interaction and Soils" and "Soil Biology."

Dr. Joseph V. Martin is Director of the program in computational and integrative biology at Rutgers Camden campus. An expert in thyroid hormones and their regulation, Professor Martin conducts research funded by the National Science Foundation.

Financial Aid and Admissions to CCIB

Financial aid for Rutgers University Camden graduate students -- in the form of teaching and research assistantships -- is available for up to 5 years.

Admission to the GPCIB program requires a bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in one of the natural sciences, mathematics, computer science or engineering. Students with a master's degree in one of these areas are also considered.

A Beautiful Campus

The Rutgers Camden campus occupies an urban section of Camden's Cooper-Grant neighborhood, just across the Delaware River from downtown Philadelphia. The campus is home to mature hardwood trees and quiet pedestrian only boulevards. A new graduate residence hall offers housing to CCIB students.
