Partnerships and Collaborations
Collaboration with Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center
The Center for Discovery and Innovation, the John Theurer Cancer Center at the Hackensack University Medical Center, and Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the Washington, D.C. area, have combined forces to take on cancer. Together, the three institutions are developing and evaluating novel cancer treatments from their earliest conception in biomarker research and preclinical studies at CDI through early and late-phase clinical trials at the other institutions. As partners, we are also evaluating new technologies to accelerate research data exchange and enhance patient outcomes. Finally, we are developing and launching new studies that will provide a greater understanding of the ways in which cancer affects large populations. Learn more.
Collaboration with Hackensack Meridian Health School of Medicine
The CDI strongly believes that medical education and scientific research go hand-in-hand. The CDI and the Hackensack Meridian Health School of Medicine share a campus, which lends itself to a close partnership between the two entities. Many of the faculty at the CDI will teach courses at the medical school, and the medical school faculty and students will become involved in the research projects taking place at the CDI. This will serve as an excellent platform for the sharing of ideas among different disciplines, an approach that is at the heart of CDI. Learn more.
Collaboration with Hackensack Meridian Health Hospitals
The CDI shares a network with 17 regional hospitals. This facilitates the sharing of resources, such as the biorepository, and promotes collaborations among the researchers at CDI with the many physicians within the network. It also enables clinicians to provide access to cutting-edge research to their patients. Learn more.
