RWJBarnabas Health and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey | Strategic Alliance Partners

As New Jersey’s only National Cancer Institute (NCI) – designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey together with RWJBarnabas Health offers the most advanced cancer treatment options including bone marrow transplantation, proton therapy, CAR T-cell therapy and complex surgical procedures. Along with clinical trials and novel therapeutics such as precision medicine and immunotherapy – many of which are not widely available – these cutting-edge therapies are available to adult and pediatric patients. Some of these treatments are fueled by onsite research in which physicians and scientists work side by side to advance our understanding of cancer and transform laboratory discoveries into clinical practice.
