About the Center for Applied Genomics

Established in January 2000 and located in Newark, NJ, the Center for Applied Genomics (CAG) explores and implements functional genomic and proteomic technologies.

The CAG collaborates with scientists and physicians at the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Stevens Institute of Technology and universities, hospitals, government labs and businesses worldwide.


A primary goal of the CAG is to provide genomic and proteomic technology expertise and to create successful collaborative research partnerships to fully leverage this technology to solve biological and medical research problems.

The CAG also has the fundamental goal of advancing technology, communicating these advances and rapidly applying them to medical and biological research.
