Clinical Trials

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health is relentlessly devoted to providing exceptional health care—which is why we conduct clinical studies to improve the way we diagnose, treat and prevent disease. 

Our cancer experts collaborate with Benaroya Research Institute and the Center for Digestive Health to offer colon cancer studies. Our trials include the use of chemotherapy, radiation and targeted therapies, as well quality of life and symptom management trials.

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health has a long-standing partnership with Benaroya Research Institute, which is a national leader in immunology and immune tolerance research. Our research program offers clinical trials for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in conjunction with the Center for Digestive Health and Benaroya Research Institute.
