Clinical Trials

Advancing care through clinical trials

We focus on clinical research studies for the types of cancers that most commonly affect our community—lung cancer, colorectal cancer, cervical cancer, prostate cancer—and more than 80% of patients enrolled on Montefiore Einstein Cancer Center clinical trials are from underrepresented groups. However, our clinical investigators are conducting research in many other types of cancer as well and have focused recently on early-phase clinical trials and greater inclusion of females (now over 55%) and patients from across the lifespan (pediatric patients under the age of 18 as well as patients over age 65).

Highlights from our current 300+ active clinical trials include:

An Open Label, Randomized Study of Neoadjuvant Nivolumab and Chemotherapy, With or Without Sub-ablative Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy, for Resectable Stage IIA to IIIB Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Access matters. We are located in the Bronx, the northernmost of the five counties that comprise New York City, and we are rapidly expanding the number of locations where people can easily be seen throughout the Tristate area—no matter what the level of income, cancer risk, or cancer diagnosis.
