Clinical Trials

Innovation to improve your healthcare.

Patients who participate in clinical trials receive access to the current standard of care, as well as the potential to be treated with a new innovative therapy even before it becomes widely available. Other studies seek to improve quality of life for patients.


Clinical Trial Sponsors

  • Lake Washington Vascular: The region’s center for total vein and artery health, where our vascular surgeons, specialists and diagnostic lab identify medical advances and integrate them into ever-advancing care.
  • Proliance Surgical Specialists at Overlake: A general and colorectal surgery group whose highly trained, knowledgeable, and caring surgeons and staff strive to create an environment of excellence, service, and accessibility for patients and referring healthcare providers.
  • NIH StrokeNet: A network of 25 regional stroke centers working with nearby satellite facilities will span the country, have teams of researchers representing every medical specialty needed for stroke care and will address the three prongs of stroke research: prevention, treatment and recovery. The Centers were announced today by the National Institutes of Health.
  • NW NCORP: Northwest CCOP and Virginia Mason CCOP forces to form the Northwest NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NW NCORP). According to the NCI about 85% of cancer patients are treated in or near their communities. Community hospitals keep patients close to family, friends and jobs, while treatment at major cancer centers may require extended commutes or long stays away from home. The overall purpose of the NW CCOP is to bring clinical advances through the most cutting edge research protocols to local communities. Overlake is proud to be a research partner with Northwest COOP through MultiCare.
  • The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP): NCI’s mission is to lead, conduct, and support cancer research across the nation to advance scientific knowledge and help all people live longer, healthier lives. As the leader of the cancer research enterprise, collectively known as the National Cancer Program, and the largest funder of cancer research in the world, NCI manages a broad range of research, training, and information dissemination activities that reach across the entire country, meeting the needs of all demographics—rich and poor, urban and rural, and all racial/ethnic populations.
