The Dey Laboratory in the Clinical Research Division at Fred Hutch seeks enthusiastic and creative individuals who are interested in problem solving and discovery. Our lab studies how diet and the gut microbiome (i.e., the micro-organisms that reside within the gastrointestinal tract) interact to influence gut physiology and thereby shape our daily experiences. Our work includes in vitro and in vivo investigations to elucidate mechanisms by which gut bacteria interface with the host (Dey et al., Cell 2015; Wagner/Dey et al., Science Translational Medicine 2016).
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.
