Molecular Pathology and Immunology

This is an exciting program that boasts a formal affiliation with Genesis Biotechnology Group (GBG) which was formerly Medical Diagnostics Laboratories LLC, and Humigen, LLC. The scientists participating in this program from Genesis Biotechnology Group have been appointed as adjunct faculty in the Department of Molecular Biology at RowanSOM. Their research interests are diverse, ranging from the cellular and molecular pathogenesis of infectious agents to the effect of aging on immune function. The program is designed to prepare students for careers in diagnostic, immunology, molecular biology and pathology laboratories.

Program Accolades

RowanGSBS is proud to place emphasis on guided independent learning. We couple this with practical experience in private sector biotechnology laboratory environments to train students in molecular aspects of biomedical diagnosis.

This project was funded through Central New Jersey's Bio-1 initiative. An educational grant was awarded through the US Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration's Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) initiative**.

Who Should Apply?

Students who are eager for a career in medical diagnostics and ready to work in the industry.
