His research is focused on finding new and better ways to treat lymphoma, particularly high-risk aggressive lymphomas, and certain uncommon types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Last year, Dr. Matasar joined the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and RWJBarnabas Health. He joins a team of professionals here that are deeply committed to the art and science of caring for people facing a diagnosis of cancer.

DATE OF RELEASE/EXPIRATIONMonday, December 18, 2023 from 11:30am-12:00pm ET
TARGET AUDIENCEThe target audience for this activity are hematologic oncologists, hematologists, medical oncologists, internists, primary care physicians, oncology advanced practice providers (NPs and PAs), oncology nurses, and other clinicians involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with MCL.
STATEMENT OF NEED/PROGRAM OVERVIEWWith many changes to the treatment landscape for mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) anticipated over the next two years, clinicians need to stay up to date with the latest advances and prepare to address practical issues, such as identifying the most appropriate therapy for each patient and managing treatment‐associated adverse events.
Join Dr. Matthew Matasar, an expert hematologic oncologist to discuss the importance of determining mutational profiles and making a differential diagnosis of MCL so treatment can be initiated promptly. Dr. Matasar will also review the limitations of chemoimmunotherapy, the rationale for better upfront treatment options, and emerging targeted treatment strategies.
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVESAfter completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Review clinical presentations, gene mutations, and differential diagnoses of MCL
- Discuss the unmet need for treatment in earlier settings for MCL and the potential of targeted Approaches
