Research in the biomedical and life sciences at Rutgers has a long and distinguished history. From the breeding of the popular Rutgers "Big Boy" tomato to the discovery of the important antibiotics actinomycin A and streptomycin (for which Rutgers professor Selman Waksman received the Nobel Prize), excellence has characterized biological research at Rutgers. The collaborative research community at Rutgers fosters new discoveries in a wide range of disciplines, from gene expression to developmental biology, from protein structure to virology, from drug design to human genetics.
