Apoptosis and Cancer Biology


Support the Lab


The Birge Laboratory is a non-profit laboratory focused on the eradication of cancer.

We conduct basic medical and scientific research on two areas: 1) the mechanisms by which epithelial cancers invade and metastasize and 2) the mechanisms by which cancer cells evade immune responses.

Funding Sources

Research in my laboratory has been funded by:

  1. National Institutes of Health (NIGMS, NCI)
  2. Department of Defense (Congressionally Directed Medical Research on Breast Cancer)
  3. Arthritis Foundation
  4. Johnson and Johnson Company
  5. Rutgers Foundation
  6. Direct Contributions

You can directly fund the mission of the Birge Lab with contributions through the Rutgers Foundation. Donations are tax deductible. 100% of any donated funding is used support primary research.


Raymond Birge marathon

The marathon is a metaphor for tackling cancer, one step at a time. I have completed the following New York City marathons: 1993, 1995 (3:33 PR), 1996, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015

Stay tuned for how you can support cancer research in the 2017 NYC marathon.
