Purpose of center:
The NJMS-UH Cancer Center opened in October 2006. The research mission is to conduct the highest quality research (basic, translational and clinical) in order to further enhance the ability to diagnose and successfully treat cancer. In particular, the programs include almost 100 faculty in the broader Cancer Center Community (CCC) at UMDNJ, Newark. The CCC draws upon existing excellence in cancer treatment and research on the Newark campus and NJMS, in particular. The Cancer Center also supervises the successful Cancer Clinical Trials Program which particularly addresses access to advanced care for underserved populations. The clinical program provides cancer screening, outreach, and educational programs in Newark and the surrounding communities to aid in diagnosing and treating patients at an earlier stage of the disease in order to improve overall quality of life and survival rates.
