Research Centers and Laboratories

New Jersey Institute of Technology has a number of multi-disciplinary research centers and specialized laboratories that focus on cutting-edge technologies with applications in biomedicine and the life sciences:

Biomaterial Drug Discovery, Delivery & Development Laboratory. Biomaterials can be functionalized to present a milieu of signals, and environments for recapitulation of native cellular phenotypes or tissue organization. These biomaterials can be fashioned into scaffolds or drugs or both for soft tissue engineering, drug development Our lab focusses on biomaterials, drug discovery and clinical translation. We are most intrigued with the path from innovation to market.

Center for Brain Imaging

Center for Injury Biomechanics, Materials and Medicine (CIBM3)

Medical Device Concept Laboratory (MDCL), focuses on the development of synthetic materials in biomedicine.  

Microelectronics Fabrication Center assists researchers in building micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) devices for a variety of applications.Bio-MEMS is an important focal point for the department.

Motor Control & Rehabilitation Laboratory

Neural Engineering for Speech and Hearing Laboratory.  Researchers in the NESH group examine how the brain processes sound, through psychophysical, physiological and computational modeling experiments. 

Neural Prosthetics Laboratory.  The main thrust area of research in the Neural Prosthetics Laboratory is to develop chronic interfaces with the central nervous system for the purpose of recording volitional control signals from disabled subjects and micro-stimulate the spinal cord to improve the motor function after injury.

Neuromuscular Engineering Laboratory

Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Wearable Robots. Enhancing Mobility and Manipulation of Individuals with Disabilities​.

Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering Laboratory

Tissue Engineering and Applied Biomaterials Laboratory

Tissue Models Laboratory

Vision and Neural Engineering Laboratory is studying how the brain divides and controls its tasks to send and receive information to better understand how the neurophysiological system operates.
