Molloy serves as the Chancellor for the Rutgers University flagship institution with responsibility for advancing the university’s mission of excellence in teaching, research, and service that benefits the public good in New Jersey, the nation, and the world. With almost 50,000 students and 11,000 faculty/staff, and an annual budget of almost $2 billion, Rutgers–New Brunswick is a national research powerhouse steeped in history, innovation, and diversity. Rutgers, with membership in the American Association of Universities and the Big Ten Conference, continues to generate new knowledge and new scholars as an institution whose faculty, students, staff, and alumni tackle issues that impact people’s lives in meaningful ways—from health care to climate change, from technology to nutrition, from the arts to engineering.

Molloy received his bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from Rutgers and his doctoral degree from the joint Rutgers Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School/Graduate School–New Brunswick. He was a post-doctoral fellow at the National Cancer Institute.

Prior to joining Rutgers, Molloy held senior research and management positions at Johnson & Johnson, 3-Dimensional Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute.
