We R Thankful

With all we have overcome in the face of unprecedented challenges, we have asked our faculty, staff and students to share stories of what they are thankful for this year.

Robert L. Johnson, dean of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and interim dean of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

Robert L. Johnson talks to President Jonathan Holloway about his journey to become the only dean in U.S. history to oversee two medical schools at once and the evolution of medical education in New Jersey in the latest episode of Faces & Voices of Rutgers.   


Albert Ayeni grew up in Nigeria, where a meal seemed incomplete if it did not include a hot pepper. Now he is working to make Rutgers the go-to center for hot pepper research to appeal to New Jersey’s growing ethnic communities and remind them of home.

An operating room on a jet might sound like something straight out of a movie, but it’s actually how Rudolph Wagner, a clinical professor in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, travels the world to fight preventable blindness.

Hear Elizabeth Matto, director of the Eagleton Institute of Politics’ Center for Youth Political Participation, explain in 60 seconds why students should care about voting.
