Research and clinical trials
Our research into finding new applications for proton therapy to treat cancer continues
Proton therapy research association
The medical community continues to conduct proton therapy research studies. Leading cancer treatment institutions such as the Mayo Clinic, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the MD Anderson Cancer Center and John Hopkins form a research association that our Proton Therapy Unit also belongs to, with multiple prospective clinical trials underway to help find improvements in cancer treatment using this therapy.
Given the academic nature of the Universidad de Navarra Hospital, research is one of our strategic pillars. We take part in clinical trials and generate clinical and translational research projects in conjunction with the Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA).

With the aim of changing the course of oncological disease, the Proton Therapy Unit has six active competitively funded research projects.
The "Retos Investigación" project, carried out together with the Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas (CIEMAT) and financed by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, focuses on the biology of proton therapy with a double objective:
- The study of the biological effects of proton therapy.
- The study of the combination of proton therapy with immunotherapy to improve treatment in patients.
