The State of New Jersey unveiled a comprehensive database of scientific research from five prominent universities in the state at the BIO International conference last week. The “Research with NJ” database is designed to promote and strengthen collaborations between universities and industry.

The free portal, which can be accessed at, features more than 3,500 faculty profiles from five schools — New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Rowan University, Rutgers, and Stevens Institute of Technology.

Within the profiles, collectively, are abstracts of more than 180,000 published works and more than 23,000 media citations. This robust database allows New Jersey’s entrepreneurs and commercial enterprises to readily find a university’s research, experts, and facilities to help them create start-ups and new products based on the universities’ innovations.

“The decisive step represented by the creation of Research with NJ sets us on a clear path toward boosting the State’s standing as a center of innovation,” said Tim Sullivan, CEO of the state’s Economic Development Authority.

Princeton University Dean for Research Pablo G. Debenedetti predicted the new portal “will make it easier for companies and academic researchers with similar interests to find each other and, in turn, to collaborate and accelerate innovation.”  

Added Rutgers Senior VP for Research and Economic Development Christopher J. Molloy, PhD, RPh: “Rutgers knows the value of collaboration and believes that fostering research partnerships creates fertile ground for an innovation ecosystem that benefits communities and improves lives. Research with New Jersey presents a real opportunity to showcase the impressive research talents and assets we have to offer the business and industry community.”
