At Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute (HUPTI), we strive to provide our clients with the best technology and the best care — the result of our continuing progress to achieve greater and greater improvements in cancer treatment. Proton therapy has evolved and made significant strides in localized cancer treatment. It is now the standard of care for numerous cancer types.

We are committed to furthering these advancements by providing the most up-to-date, effective technologies available to our patients and the entire cancer community. Through our relentless research and continuing education programs, our goal is to provide the highest level of care possible for patients and their families.

HUPTI is currently working toward advancements in prostate, breast and lung cancer protocols. We are developing specialized techniques in order to further reduce the damage to healthy tissue in close proximity to cancerous cells. The knowledge gained from clinical trials is invaluable in advancing treatment practices for future cancer patients.


Our facility has multiple gantry treatment machines with 360-degree rotation capability, a  fixed gantry treatment room for eye, prostate, neck and head cancers, as well as an advanced PET/CT imaging system to ensure precision with millimeter accuracy. The center is also designed for patient comfort with serene patient care rooms and common areas that reflect the beauty and tranquility of the nearby Virginia coastline.

As a patient treatment facility and a research and education center, HUPTI builds upon Hampton’s legacy of knowledge and innovation. Our doctors and researchers are further developing the science of proton therapy to remain at the vanguard of the fight against cancer. HUPTI continues to be a catalyst for new scientific discoveries and increasingly accurate, advanced care for cancer patients.
