Clinical Research

Clinical trials depend on volunteers from the community.  Samaritan’s clinical research team works with hundreds of patients in the mid-Willamette Valley, connecting them with cutting-edge research through our local principal investigators. The advancement of medicine would not be possible without the continued participation of patients in clinical research.

Samaritan’s clinical research program was established in 2008. Sponsors have included: Pfizer, Boehringer Ingelheim, Spectrum, Celgene, Genentech, Amgen, Genentech, Tragara, Bracco Diagnostic, Eisai, PUMA, Novartis, Incyte, Pharmatech, Medtronic, St. Jude Medical and the National Institutes of Health.

  • National Institute of Health and Federal Drug Administration registration number: IRB00005278.
  • Institutional Organization Number (IORG) is IORG0004448.
  • We are a research affiliate of UCSF for The Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology.
