Bringing research to life: From genetic implications to exploring the impact of self-cannibalization of cancer cells, scientists at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey work in concert with our physicians to translate cancer discoveries into today’s treatments.

Research at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey

Research Overview

Under the microscope at CINJThe Cancer Institute of New Jersey's physician-scientists engage in translational research, transforming their laboratory discoveries into clinical practice, outsmarting cancer with science.

The Cancer Institute of New Jersey is a matrix style, basic, clinical and population research center as well as a consortium cancer center with Rutgers University and Princeton University leveraging the science of the state's cancer researchers through collaboration. The Cancer Institute of New Jersey is sharply focused on fulfilling the cancer research needs of the most densely populated and industry rich state in the nation.

The Cancer Institute of New Jersey research programs and core facilities enhance and support the cancer research of more than 180 members at Rutgers University, Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.

Research at the Cancer Institute of New JerseyResearch is currently being conducted in areas including: population science, precision medicine, systems biology, oncogenesis, tumor virology and immunology, autophagy, drug development and resistance, the relationship between cellular and genetic alterations and tumor development, cancer control and prevention, bioinformatics, and cancer genomics.

The Cancer Institute of New Jersey continues to expand its foundation of knowledge and the technical tools with which rapid advances can be made in understanding the mechanisms of cancer.  Opportunities to manage the disease have increased and clinical research studies have yielded results that will have a profound effect in the prevention and treatment of many cancers.
