Physician Profile

Joseph Aisner, MD
Co-Director, Thoracic Oncology Program
Medical Oncologist

I have been in oncology practice for over 40 years, the last 20 of which have been at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

Since even before my training as a fellow at the National Cancer Institute, which was preceded by a residency at Georgetown University Hospital, I have had a strong interest in oncology.  My long-standing research has focused on clinical trials and the application of evidence based medical practice. 

I am the author or co-author of more than 600 publications and serve on the editorial board of multiple journals.  I am a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (FASCO) and belong to several professional societies in which I have held offices.  I also serve on the Executive Committee of the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) and chair multiple Data Safety Monitoring Committees.
