The NJIT science building is situated with the latest research technology in the biomedical field.  The 21 million dollar project was partially funded by the Building Our Future Bond Act signed by Governor Chris Christie.

“We won’t know for years whether this was the right decision or the wrong one.  I am confident that because of the leadership here at NJIT that it will be judged being the right decision because of the great young people you will help to train and educate in these buildings.  New Jersey will be a much better place in the years to come because of the investments we’ve made here.”

Speaking on his legacy as governor, Christie believes a part of it lies in the education institutions erected during his administration.

“What you want to do as governor is try to create circumstances which allow the very best of the people you serve to come out.  When we create great modern institutions of learning, we create the opportunity that god has placed in every one of our citizens to come out.”

Treena Livingston Arinzeh is the institutions leading professor of biomedical engineering.

“These faculty laboratories will be in a more modular, more open-spaced facility to encourage the sharing of ideas and techniques amongst students, and trainees.  It will house state of the art equipment in cellular imaging, and materials characterization, to allow for high quality research.”
