The Network Contagion Lab at Rutgers University (NC Lab at Rutgers) is a newly established, cyber-social threat identification and forecasting center developed through a partnership between the Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI), Rutgers’ Miller Center for Community Protection and Resilience, and Rutgers’ Center for Critical Intelligence Studies.

The NC Lab at Rutgers provides an immersive training program in which students are prepared to participate as active members of a multidisciplinary research team. Students of varying backgrounds, from literature, to psychology, to mathematics and computer science, learn by observing, integrating, and modeling the latest cutting-edge techniques and skills essential for deriving intelligence from open sources. The Lab acts as a center for identifying and forecasting cyber-social threats and focuses on protecting vulnerable communities from threats ranging from Islamophobia and anti-Black hate to Hinduphobia and antisemitism.
