Rutgers University - Newark

Rutgers University–Newark is renowned for its scientific research, and those efforts got a big boost recently when the school acquired a premier ecology think tank, the Meadowlands Environmental Research Institute (MERI), from the State of New Jersey.

The acquisition, completed this fall, gives RU-N a multimillion-dollar research center on the Hackensack River estuary along with a sizable research-grant portfolio. It also makes the school an important source of environmental data for state and federal agencies as MERI continues to advance critical scientific research in the Meadowlands region.

And given that MERI was founded at RU-N 18 years ago, it is also something of a homecoming.

MERI Director Francisco Artigas, an associate research professor of environmental science at RU-N, helped start the institute along with Distinguished Professor Nabil Adam, of the Rutgers Business School (RBS), who currently serves as RU-N’s Vice Chancellor for Research and Collaborations.
