Study Opportunities

We are currently enrolling cancer patients and survivors in a variety of clinical trials. Learn about our study opportunities below.

EMBRACE Exercising Together

EMBRACE Exercising Together Study, teal and while

Opening soon! We are conducting a randomized controlled trial designed to learn how being physically active can help the physical and emotional well-being of people with breast or prostate cancer and their partners as they go through radiation treatment together. Couples who participate will be randomly assigned to either participate in an online exercise class with their spouse/partner 3 times a week for 8 weeks beginning at the start of radiation, or they will be provided with information and resources about how to stay physically active during and after radiation treatment. All couples will complete health surveys and online assessments 4 times over 6 months, plus provide a finger-poke blood sample 2 times. Learn more about the EMBRACE study.

iLIVE Study

Our research has shown that hormone therapy (sometimes called ADT) for prostate cancer may impact a man’s physical and mental well-being. The iLIVE study will combine an online diet and exercise program for this population and could help men feel better and improve their quality of life. Your participation could help us learn how effective this program is at reducing weight and increasing physical functional in men with prostate cancer. Learn more about the iLIVE study.

Pacific Aging and Cancer Study

Now open! The PACS technology survey is currently recruiting cancer survivors who are 65 years or older, or people who have been a co-residing care partner for a cancer survivor over 65 years old. This one-time, anonymous survey will ask you about your thoughts and feelings on the use of technology in healthcare. Learn more about the survey

PATTERN for people during and after chemotherapy


PATTERN is an observational study that's investigating how treatment-related side effects and physical functioning change during and after chemotherapy for cancer. Study participants complete brief and simple assessments of touch sensation, muscle function and balance during their scheduled clinic visits. Participants also report their symptoms each week via computer (or mobile device) and wear a wristwatch and ankle sensors for a few days to track physical activity and movement patterns. The information that we learn from this study could help improve quality of life for patients receiving life-saving therapy for cancer.

The study is open to adults who are 40 years and older, have been diagnosed with stage I-III cancer, and will soon begin chemotherapy. If you or someone you know is interested, please call 503-346-0444, ext 3, or email
