Clinical Cancer Research

The NJMS-UH Cancer Center Clinical Research Office is the base of a well-functioning, fully staffed coordinated program whose goal is to undertake clinical research and offer state of the art clinical trials to the patients in our Cancer Center. The Office is staffed by two regulatory officers, four patient navigators/data managers, a secretary and a research nurse and has input from the Director of Oncology Nursing Services, who is its former manager. Robert Wieder, M.D., Ph.D. serves as the Director of the Office. The primary goal of the Clinical Research Office is to provide state of the art clinical trials to the patient community served by the cancer center. They are members in good standing of the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG), the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) and the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG). Currently, they have numerous active protocols, and are in a rapid growth phase, opening dozens of additional NCI-approved clinical trials. They have an innovative extramurally funded patient navigator program to identify patients eligible for protocols, enlist them for participation in clinical trials, and help keep them on track through completion of their treatment and any necessary follow up. The Clinical Research Office is also a participant and partner in translational research programs and investigator-initiated clinical trials. They assist in Institutional Review board (IRB) application preparation and submission and tissue procurement for faculty at the NJMS
