About Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey

As New Jersey’s only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey is dedicated to improving the prevention, detection, treatment, and care of patients with cancer, through the transformation of laboratory discoveries into clinical practice - outsmarting cancer with science. The Cancer Institute of New Jersey delivers advanced comprehensive care to adults and children including access to clinical trials and conducts cutting-edge cancer research.

The coveted NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center designation, awarded to only 47 such centers nationwide, is granted competitively to institutions characterized by scientific excellence and the ability to bring research discoveries to patients. To gain a "comprehensive" designation, the highest ranking given by the NCI, a center must meet rigorous criteria in cancer care, research, prevention and education.

The leadership of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey is comprised of distinguished researchers and physicians who are internationally recognized in their field. Our basic scientists, clinical researchers, and population scientists meet regularly to exchange information and ensure that laboratory discoveries are refined and applied to clinical care as quickly as possible, that clinical observations reach laboratory researchers on a continuing basis, and that prevention strategies are interwoven in to all research programs - with one goal in mind - winning is everything!

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey is now a part of Rutgers Health, the most comprehensive academic health care provider organization in New Jersey, offering a breadth of accessible clinical care throughout the State supported by the latest health-related research and education. Rutgers Health connects health care providers across disciplines, including doctors, nurses, dentists, physician assistants, pharmacists, clinical psychologists and social workers, with a single focus: helping people and populations get well and stay well by delivering consistent, coordinated, value-based health care.
