Propel Cancer Research and Treatment


Donations support groundbreaking research, including leading-edge clinical trials to develop new, innovative treatments for cancer by harnessing the power of the body's immune system.

Providence scientists work with clinicians to bring new treatments to patients faster. Seventy percent of cancer research at Providence is supported by philanthropy, and it is thanks to donor support that Providence Cancer Institute and the Earle A. Chiles Research Institute are known worldwide for advancements in cancer immunotherapy research and treatment.

But there is more to do, and we need your help. 

Cancer clinical trials

Cancer clinical trials lead to advancements in treatment and early detection that are improving survival rates for patients diagnosed with cancer. 

DaVinci robot technology

We are one of only a few hospitals in the U.S. equipped with this technology for use in personalizing treatment, lessening radiation or chemotherapy, and protecting taste and swallowing in patients with head and neck cancer.

Research trials for vaccine development

Research trials aid in the development of the COVID-19 vaccine, drawn from our vast expertise in immunotherapy and cancer vaccine research.
