Professor Jana Gevertz Wins Gitenstein-Hart Sabbatical Prize for Mathematical Biology Project

Jana Gevertz was drawn to medicine, but she didn’t want to be a doctor. “I was a math major, but wanted to do something that could have a direct societal impact,” she says. Then it happened. As an undergrad at Rutgers University, her father was diagnosed with stage IV lymphoma. “That sealed the deal for me,” says the Princeton PhD of her decision to begin exploring cancer from a mathematical perspective.

Applications Requested for Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships

Exceptional TCNJ sophomore and junior students who intend to pursue a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in science, mathematics, or engineering are encouraged to apply for Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships. The scholarship, which provides $7,500 per year for up to two years, is highly prestigious. Therefore, even those students with full scholarships are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be evaluated based upon academic excellence, evidence of service and leadership, student research involvement (although this is not expected for sophomore applicants), and the student’s statement of his/her future research goals.

‘We’re building on success here’: TCNJ breaks ground on $75M STEM building

‘We’re building on success here’: TCNJ breaks ground on $75M STEM building

With the help of some miniature robots, officials at The College of New Jersey broke ground Tuesday on a new 89,000-square-foot STEM building that will give its engineering and science programs 60 percent more classroom and laboratory space. The building, which will house the biomedical engineering, computer science and mechanical engineering departments, will be the anchor of a larger STEM Complex that already includes the Biology Building, Science Complex and Armstrong Hall.
