MultiCare Institute for Research & Innovation MultiCare Institute for Research & Innovation brings research opportunities to our community.
(3)

MultiCare has been involved with clinical research studies for over 35 years, initially focusing on the area of oncology. Over time, the research program expanded into a portfolio of Phase I – IV clinical studies spanning a diverse base of diseases and medical conditions. The MultiCare Institute for Research & Innovation, formed in 2010, has gathered all of the research efforts in our health care

system into a single program. The Institute conducts both clinical trials and outcomes-based research with MultiCare-employed physicians, as well as physicians practicing independently in the community. We participate in research through a number of mechanisms including federal, industry and investigator-initiated studies. MultiCare also performs clinical studies in conjunction with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA).

MultiCare's Research Institute was a central reason Jennifer Slim, DO, chose to work for the health system over academic centers or other opportunities.

"I had not before seen the level of research we have here...I had no idea a community [health] center would have this volume of research, this variety of research, and all these opportunities and support. I have a team to help me write papers, research different ideas and even pull together protocols and really help me from the ground up. That is what I was looking for when I came here, and I found it."

In 2020, people of color comprised more than 40% of the U.S. population, but just 25% of the participants of clinical drug trials which resulted in 53 approved novel drugs.

MultiCare’s Institute for Research & Innovation recently received funding to increase inclusion and diversity in cancer clinical trials. The project has a few goals: to enroll more diverse populations in clinical trials; to ensure communities of color benefit from advancements in cancer research; and to decrease cancer disparities.

“As a health care organization, we are thinking about how to bring about racial healing alongside and within communities of color.”—Deana Williams, PhD, MPH.

Whether it's at a primary care clinic or an outreach event, MultiCare is dedicated to reducing health disparities within communities of color.

Medical oncologist and hematologist Brett Gourley, MD at MultiCare Deaconess Cancer and Blood Specialty Center believes access to research is especially important in oncology because there’s still so much room for improvement in the field.

“Medicine isn’t perfect. We can’t 100 percent treat and cure all ailments at the time, but we’re always trying to do better than what we’ve done in the past,” he says. “The only way to do that is clinical trials and research. Our goal is to get to the point [where] we can treat you, ultimately cure you and leave you in a state where you’re just as good or better than you were before.”

At MultiCare we screen each oncology patient for participation in relevant trials so leading-edge treatments are fully integrated into their clinical treatment plans, arming patients with the knowledge they need to access the most cutting-edge, potentially lifesaving treatment options.

A MultiCare cancer doctor talks about the importance of research options and the availability of clinical trials for patients currently in cancer treatment.

Angela Silva, DBA, MAOL, CRA, has long known that research can save lives. As a certified research administrator, she has spent much of her career helping health professionals develop their research ideas, apply for funding and run their programs or clinical studies.

It’s been three years since she received her cancer diagnosis, and in that time she’s had the opportunity to reflect on the importance of the clinical trial in her treatment.

“Part of what participating in that trial gave me is peace of mind,” Silva says. “Not only did I have an oncologist and a nurse navigator advocating for me, but a whole research team — this big network of people supporting me and making sure I had the information I needed to make decisions. Thanks to them, I have a second chance at life.”

After being diagnosed with a fast-growing breast cancer, Angela Silva enrolled in a clinical trial through the MultiCare Institute for Research and Innovation. A few months later, her tumors had shrunk.

Following months of migraines, nasal congestion, nose bleeds and other symptoms, tests revealed a mass in Autumn Park’s sinuses, a form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma. Park was referred to MultiCare Mary Bridge Children’s, where a clinical trial testing an investigational treatment for this cancer was being offered.

“My cancer was stage 4 — my odds for survival weren’t good. But whether I lived or died, I wanted my suffering to mean something. If participating in the trial would help someone, whether it was a year from now or 50 years from now, I wanted to do that.”

After a diagnosis of rhabdomyosarcoma, 24-year-old Autumn Park achieved remission through a clinical trial offered at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital.

For 40 years MultiCare has leveraged research to advance the quality of care in our community. By offering clinical trials as part of care delivery plans through the MultiCare Institute for Research & Innovation, we arm patients with the knowledge they need to access the most cutting-edge, potentially lifesaving treatment options. These trials provide critical access to emerging drug treatments and protocols of care often not available outside large urban areas and frequently inaccessible due to insurance limitations.

Not even a decade ago, a multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis felt like the end of the world for many. Fast-forward to present day: MultiCare’s neuroscience and research teams are encouraged by how far treatment has come — and say that momentum is only growing.

A MultiCare neurologist and clinical research coordinator celebrate how far we’ve come in MS treatment and talk about the importance of research in developing new therapies.
