  • Research Studies and Clinical Trials

  • The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Rhode Island, The Miriam, and Newport hospitals is an active clinical trials site, committed to providing patients with the latest protocols. Our patients have access to groundbreaking new immunotherapies and other new and emerging cancer treatments at various stages of diagnosis and across many cancer types.

    Cancer treatments include the latest chemotherapy, biologic agents, radiation oncology, surgery, and image-guided procedures. Many of these are not available elsewhere in New England. 

    Our Comprehensive Cancer Center physicians also actively participate in the Brown University Oncology Group (BrUOG), a unique regional clinical trials network that provides highly innovative approaches to cancer care.

    The COBRE Center for Cancer Research Development (CCRD) is the only hospital-based center for cancer research in Rhode Island that is funded by the National Institutes of Health. Science research conducted at this center is used to design and implement novel diagnostic and treatment protocols benefiting patients in the Comprehensive Cancer Center and the community at large.
