Our Medical Research
Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason's mission is to find the causes and cures of devastating diseases, including diabetes, arthritis, cancer, autoimmune, heart disease and many others. Much of our emphasis is on solving the puzzle of these conditions by unlocking the mysteries of the immune system. Our work in the laboratory to investigate diseases at a genetic and molecular level is being translated into understanding how these approaches can be applied to patients and at-risk individuals. Indeed, we are now using these therapies and discoveries in clinical research to bring new medical advances to people at the earliest opportunity.
