Resources for Community & Referring Physicians
As one of the country’s preeminent academic medical centers, NYU Langone provides fertile ground for our gifted investigators, who continue to set the bar high for biomedical research.
Our institution houses more than 800 research faculty and postdoctoral fellows in more than 550,000 square feet of research space. In addition, our 16-story facility for biomedical research is set to open in 2017. If your patient is interested in participating in a clinical trial, a referral to NYU Langone will ensure that he or she is seen by leading researchers in state-of-the-art facilities.
As your patient considers his or her clinical research options, we’ll make sure you’re involved every step of the way. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our participants, and collaboration with treating physicians is the first step in ensuring that the participant has a positive and safe clinical research experience.
You can get information about some of our current trials by accessing a list of NYU School of Medicine studies at clinicaltrials.gov. Not all of our trials are viewable through this link, however. For more information about our currently available clinical trials, you can contact us at 646-754-7431.
Cancer-Related Clinical Research
When you have diagnosed a patient with cancer, or suspect a cancer diagnosis, you want to ensure that the patient receives the best possible care and treatment. At NYU Langone’s Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute–designated cancer center, we personalize every patient’s care. Our teams of physicians and scientists work together across multiple disciplines to bring patients the latest treatments and innovative clinical trials.
Our goal is to bring visionary thinking and compassionate care to the science of managing cancer. As your patient’s primary physician, you are a valuable member of this team. We work closely with you and keep you informed of your patient’s care and progress. Upon completion of treatment, we continue to provide support to you and your patient as needed.
To find out whether there is currently an open clinical trial for a particular cancer diagnosis, search NYU Langone’s database of cancer trials. After you find the trial you’re interested in, the principal investigator and research team’s contact information should be visible. Contact the research team directly if you’d like to refer a patient to their clinical trial.
