Welcome to PHRI

As today’s biomedical advances occur at a dizzying pace, the Public Health Research Institute, a center of the Institute for Infectious & Inflammatory Diseases (i3D) at New Jersey Medical School, pursues its research mission to help eliminate the infectious diseases spreading across the planet.

Founded in 1942 in New York City by legendary Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, PHRI has been home to seminal discoveries in biomedical sciences. Hosted in the ICPH building in Newark, NJ, since 2002, PHRI became part of the New Jersey Medical School in 2006 and joined Rutgers University in 2013.

For almost 80 years, PHRI has fostered a culture of international talent, a collaborative environment, and the mentoring of young scientists. Today, PHRI remains committed to the pursuit of excellence in research and learning.
