A research technician position is immediately available in the Cheung laboratory within Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center\u2019s Translational Research Program. The Cheung lab focuses on the molecular mechanisms that give rise to breast cancer metastasis - the spread of cancer beyond the breast to other organs such as the lungs, liver, bones and brain. Metastatic breast cancer is terminal and is responsible for most breast cancer deaths. The driving mission of our lab is to discover new innovative ways to treat and prevent this devastating disease.
We are looking for an individual who is highly organized, a great communicator, and passionate about science. Our lab is a fast paced environment, and we are looking for someone who enjoys working with cutting edge 3D human tumor organoids, microscopy, and novel mouse models of metastasis.
Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch\u2019s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation\u2019s first and largest cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women\u2019s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before ...that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
