Phase I Team The Phase I/Investigational Therapeutics Program is a multidisciplinary scientific group designed to develop new methods for the treatment of cancer. The program includes a team of medical oncologists, nurses, research scientists, data coordinators and social workers who have extensive experience in providing novel therapeutic strategies.

Through this program, patients and physicians have access to the newest and most promising cancer treatments supported by the National Cancer Institute, pharmaceutical companies and Rutgers Cancer Institute. Patients with a variety of malignancies are typically eligible to receive these treatments. The team meets weekly to discuss current and pending clinical trials and reviews all patients on Phase I clinical trials.
