About Education & Research at Perlmutter Cancer Center
At NYU Langone Health’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, we are dedicated to advancing cancer research and education to develop innovative, life-changing new treatments for people with cancer while training the next generation of oncologists and researchers. Our multidisciplinary teams of scientists and clinicians collaborate to investigate diagnostic methods and novel therapies, leading to advances in treatments—such as immunotherapy and targeted biological agents—for a wide range of cancers.
Our robust phase I clinical trials program gives patients unprecedented access to novel treatment options, should their first line of therapy fail. Our faculty has shown national leadership in early-phase and investigator-initiated trials, offering a diverse clinical trial portfolio and pioneering advancements in the application of immunotherapy to cancer.
Our reputation as leaders in cancer research and education continues to attract high-profile recruits, including world-renowned physician–scientists and clinical trial specialists, to our faculty. As a result, our colleagues continue to make significant contributions, from leading cutting-edge clinical trials to faculty and research team collaborations.
With several new locations and a growing roster of physicians, Perlmutter Cancer Center is delivering world-class care to more patients than ever at more than 20 locations across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island. Our expanded footprint allows us to serve one of the largest, most diverse patient bases in the nation and to provide community outreach and education. With pioneering research, exceptional medical education, and innovative clinical trials, we continue to shape the future of cancer care.
