Through Cancer Research and Clinical Trials, we take part in studies designed to find:

  • New treatments that work better than existing therapies and have fewer side effects
  • Strategies to prevent cancer
  • Ways to improve quality of life during and after treatment

The National Cancer Institute sponsors most of our trails, which are the same research studies that take place at other top cancer centers. Certified nurses and research staff who are overseen by experienced medical and radiation oncologists coordinate our research.

We help identify studies that may be beneficial for you and fully inform you of all potential benefits and risks of your participation. Decisions about taking part are strictly up to you. If you do participate, we closely monitor you throughout the process. Your safety and well-being are our top priority.

By participating in a clinical trial, you may gain access to new, improved therapies before they are widely available.

Why Choose Us for Your Cancer Care?

We know that every patient is unique. No two patients – or their treatment plans – are the same. This is why we take a highly personalized approach to your cancer care and we always put our patients first. Our expert clinicians work with you to develop a specialized treatment plan that fits your personal needs, because we know this results in the best outcomes. And, of course, you receive the cutting-edge treatment and compassionate care Providence is known for.

As our patient, you and your loved ones are supported by an entire care team throughout your treatment journey. Our board-certified medical oncologists use the most advanced techniques in your diagnosis and treatment. They work closely with an extensive team that includes nurse navigators, specialists and other caregivers who provide a range of support services – from prevention and education to nutrition, integrative medicine and counseling.

Cancer doesn’t discriminate, but access to great cancer care hasn’t always been the same for everyone. At Providence, we are deeply committed to making sure every patient we treat has access to the best cancer care. We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and spiritual identities of each member of our diverse communities, and we never turn a patient away. Instead, we work harder to make sure every patient is treated equally and with dignity – whoever you are, and wherever you're at.

When you become a patient at Providence, you become part of a collaborative cancer-care network that often exceeds national measures for patient outcomes. This network includes award-winning physicians, scientists, researchers and caregivers across 51 hospitals in seven states. The power of this network, combined with the expertise of your local team, means you’re getting the best, most compassionate care. And if you need to meet with a specialist outside your area, we’ve got telehealth technology to help. Our network is one of the reasons 50,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients choose Providence each year.

Providence cancer research provides options, and hope, for patients seeking advanced therapies. We’re proud of our history of groundbreaking firsts and pioneering clinical trials: Providence led the international trial of the first immunotherapy to be approved for patients with melanoma. We conducted the first successful gene-engineered T-cell therapy for metastatic pancreatic cancer. And we have over 90 years of radiation research. As a Providence patient, you have the opportunity to participate in – or benefit from – one of over 1,300 new clinical trials that begin each year.
