The MultiCare Institute for Research & Innovation is dedicated to improving the delivery of health care for our patients by providing access to clinical trials. These trials connect our patients to cutting-edge research right here in the communities where they live, work and go to school.
MIRI has over 37 years of experience in industry-sponsored drug and device trials and investigator-initiated research. Our research enables our providers to not only deliver high-quality care and support to patients throughout our area but also contribute valuable knowledge that improves well-being for patients everywhere.
MIRI’s physician-researchers offer COVID-19 clinical trials at MultiCare hospitals in the Puget Sound and Inland Northwest regions. They are working to discover which treatments and treatment methods can best fight this highly infectious virus.
Clinical research is crucial for advancing modern medicine. Research has helped us discover new vaccines, promising new surgical treatments and more. And, it improves health care so we can create healthier futures.
We are currently enrolling children and adults in research studies that address chronic, rare and life-threatening diseases as well as common conditions that hinder everyday quality of life.
MultiCare Health System awarded its Diane Cecchettini Excellence in Research Award to a team of MIRI researchers investigating the effectiveness of convalescent plasma and remedsivir for treating COVID-19. As a result, patients across our area had access to a crucial lifeline.
