Cancer Research and Clinical Trials
Innovative Cancer Research and Newest Treatments
The Lifespan Cancer Institute 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. Our medical professionals can answer questions and help determine whether participation in one of our research programs is beneficial for the patient.
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.
Benedito Carneiro, MD, director of clinical research and cancer drug development, discusses the robust clinical trials program at the Lifespan Cancer institute.
