Stuart Goldberg MD is Chief Medical Officer at COTA, Inc. and Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Rutgers: The New Jersey Medical School. He also maintains an active clinical practice in the Division of Leukemia at the John Theurer Cancer Center. Dr. Goldberg obtained his medical degree at the Milton Hershey Medical Center of Pennsylvania State University. After completing internal medical residency and hematology-oncology fellowships at George Washington University Medical Center, he served as a BMT fellow at the Mayo Clinic and Associate Director of the BMT Program at Temple University. Dr. Goldberg’s clinical research has focused on new treatment strategies for patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes. Recognizing the wealth of information contained in electronic health record data he and his partners at JTCC founded COTA, a data and analytic company that seeks to optimize patient outcomes while reducing population healthcare costs. In the field of “big data” analysis he has used databases to redefine the incidence and complications related with myelodysplastic syndromes (published in JCO and Transfusion) and has reviewed observational databases (including SIMPLICITY) to foster adherence with evidence based CML monitoring guidelines (published in JOP, CRMO and CLML). Most recently he has used the COTA database to explore rates and implications of EGFR mutational testing among community oncologists (published in Clin Lung), patterns of care in T-cell lymphoma (published in CLML), end-of-life care decisions (published in Palliative Med) and cost-effectiveness of genomic profiling in lower risk breast cancer (published in AJMC). This research earned him the 2015 David King Clinical Scientist Award from the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC). He is listed as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor for Medical Oncology in the NY Metro and NJ areas.
