The Biopharma Educational Initiative is a unique WEB-BASED (100% online) GRADUATE program designed to bring together biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries with the University in an academic partnership to develop career enhancing educational opportunities for existing or future biopharmaceutical employees.  Bringing new drugs and devices to market has become a complex process requiring the skills of specialized and talented clinical research professionals.   Through both post-baccalaureate certificates, and a Master’s Degree Program we educate individuals to become Clinical Research Professionals who possess a thorough understanding of drug and device development.


"The process of discovery is very simple. An unwearied and systematic application of known laws to natural causes the unknown to reveal themselves."

Henry David Thoreau

The Biopharma Educational Initiative sits in the heart of “Pharma Alley” in New Jersey.  Because of this proximity to pharmaceutical and biotech companies we have been able to recruit talented faculty and add them to our already impressive coterie of University faculty.  In addition, Rutgers Biomedical & Health Sciences is one of the largest health care research institutions in the US with our own contract research organization and well regarded research facilities. Opportunities for networking with industry leaders and gifted principal investigators are valuable assets offered to our students.


Enrollment is available within our Online Master’s specialization tracks or in our three Online Academic Certificate Programs, and also to applicants seeking visiting student enrollment in individual courses. These web-based courses were designed to fit into the busy schedules of working professionals. Read more about web-based learning.
