Cancer Research

New Roads to Treatment

For more than 40 years, EMMC’s research program has brought new and innovative cancer treatments to people here in Maine. Our cancer clinical trials program currently offers more than 70 clinical trials to serve the needs of our patients across a wide spectrum of ages, diseases, and stages of disease.  Our BioBank gives patients the opportunity to help with the discovery of new cancer treatments by contributing cells to cancer research.

Help Cancer Research

The EMMC Champion the Cure Challenge benefits local cancer research at EMMC Cancer Care. Held the third weekend in August each year, the Challenge is a major funding source for cancer research in our region.

There are many ways to participate. Choose from a 1K, 5K, or 10K walk/run, a 25, 50, or 100 mile bike ride, or a 50 miles motorcycle ride, or participate as a sponsor, volunteer, or virtual participant.
