Physician Profile

Jyoti Malhotra, MD, MPH
Medical Oncologist

As a medical oncologist, I care for patients with lung, mesothelioma and esophageal cancers, as well as those who participate in clinical trials. I joined Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey after completing a fellowship in Hematology and Oncology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. This was preceded by a residency in Internal Medicine at Georgetown University Hospital and Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC.

My research interest is in the mechanisms underlying development of cancer and how factors such as smoking and environment influence cancer risk. I am also exploring newer therapies which take into account individual variability in genomic changes in the tumor cells, thereby providing patients a personalized approach for treatment of their cancer. As a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Association for Cancer Research, I keep abreast of the latest cancer research trends.

As a member of the Lung Cancer Program at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, I work collaboratively with members of our multidisciplinary team including thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and nurses to provide comprehensive care to patients. I am also a member of the Phase I/Investigational Therapeutics Program in which I work closely with a dedicated research team to increase access to newer therapies to our patients.
