Patients have been enrolling in translational research studies at Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) for almost 30 years. In 2017, thanks to a generous donation from the Richard A. Henson Foundation, the Richard A. Henson Research Institute opened in a newly renovated location. The Richard A. Henson Research Institute has significantly enhanced the community’s access to medical research for the patients we serve. The Institute serves as the centralized hub of knowledge and resources that researchers use to strengthen the coordination of care and intensive follow-up required to manage patients enrolled on clinical research protocols. The Institute assists physicians and other health care practitioners at PRMC to provide patients with state of the science clinical trials and observational studies through its partnerships with leading organizations such as the Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network, national cooperative groups of the National Cancer Institute and the healthcare industry.

Best practices are an ever-changing goal and we at the Richard A. Henson Research Institute believe the integration of the clinical trial with patient care represents the best model to achieve that objective.
