NYU Cancer Institute Has a Unique Understanding of Cancer—& Cancer Patients
NYU Cancer Institute brings together the vast resources of NYU Medical Center to offer advanced cancer research and treatment. Dedicated to understanding cancer and reducing its occurrence by accelerating innovation, NYU Cancer Institute strives to surround patients and families with the support they need to maintain as normal a life as possible while fighting the disease.
As one of the few National Cancer Institute (NCI)–designated cancer centers in the region, NYU Cancer Institute offers access to the latest research, treatment options, technology and clinical trials. Its multidisciplinary team of experts may offer surgical, radiation, chemotherapeutic, biologic and/or investigational therapies designed to address each individual’s specific type of cancer and situation.
This approach to cancer care is complemented by a wide variety of programs in cancer prevention, screening and diagnostics. Patients and families also have the benefit of counseling for mental health, nutrition and genetics, as well as individual and group support.
Patient care is centered in two Manhattan locations: NYU Clinical Cancer Center, 160 East 34th Street, and the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, 160 East 32nd Street.
NYU Clinical Cancer Center provides a single location for treatment programs, advanced technology, physician offices, clinical research and a full range of support services to offer comprehensive and convenient care for adult patients.
