Status in the States, the series in The American Journal of Managed Cares news publication, Evidence-Based Oncology, took a look at cancer care in New Jersey two years after a high-profile reorganization of the states higher education system. The overhaul has improved collaboration within research units and with nearby pharmaceutical giants, and a new medical school reports a bumper crop of applicants.
Plainsboro, NJ (PRWEB) August 30, 2014
Cancer care has undergone a revolution in New Jersey in the decades since the state led the nation in incidence of the disease, and a 2012 higher education overhaul is aiding research collaborations, leaders from New Jerseys top academic cancer centers told Evidence-Based Oncology, a publication of The American Journal of Managed Care. Key points in the story include:
Amid all the positive momentum, the biggest threat to ongoing investment in cancer research and care is the states ongoing budget crisis. This spring, Gov. Chris Christie initially proposed a $10 million cut to CINJ and cuts to the N.J. Commission on Cancer Research, citing the fiscal challenges presented by the states unfunded obligations to public sector retirement funds. The Legislature restored the cuts in the FY 2015 budget, and Gov. Christie has convened a bipartisan commission to address the shortfalls in the retirement funds.
