Christie said the plan would "realize hundreds of millions of dollars in research grants" for Rutgers University and had already prompted some drug companies to call the state and say how useful the merger would be, because they would be able to go "from the laboratory to clinical trials" at one university. At a meeting with The Record’s editorial board on Tuesday, Christie said the University of Medicine and Dentistry of North Jersey — with a poor reputation — had received $350 million in grants for research last year and that the new ties to Rutgers would likely generate much more.

The justification for the merger in New Brunswick was no joke. You just wish it wasn't bogged down by all that other stuff. Christie's quote here makes me think that he might have been the one to tell George Norcross to cave, which would be really awesome if true.
