Ramapo College is one of the few undergraduate colleges in the US and the first in New Jersey to offer a baccalaureate degree in Bioinformatics. Ramapo has well-maintained modern laboratories for biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, chemistry and physics that you will use throughout your Bioinformatics program.
Bioinformatics is practiced in the fields of molecular, personalized and preventative medicine, biotechnology and nanobiotechnology. Applying this powerful new technology can help to prevent, diagnose and treat inherited and other diseases, design new drugs and vaccines, shorten the development cycle of new medicines and much more.
As a student of Bioinformatics, you will be assigned at least three separate research projects during your junior and senior years. You will also be encouraged to present your findings at research conferences and publish your accomplishments in peer reviewed scientific journals. If you’re interested in gaining internship experience, previous Ramapo students have participated in programs with NJ State Police Office of Forensic Sciences, Meadowlands Environment Center, ADP, Alpha Physician Resources (EMA), and the New York Blood Center.
