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 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.

In order to fulfill its mission, Fred Hutch is dedicated to:
Generating new scientific discoveries and translating them into effective medical practices, therapies and public health approaches
Recruiting, supporting and training highly qualified scientists and physicians in an environment that promotes collaboration and excellence
Cooperating with other research entities and medical institutions to assure worldwide access to new research findings and technical developments
Providing sensitive, efficient and effective care for patients participating in our experimental therapies and other studies
Promoting the importance of scientific research, responsible medical care, healthy environments and personal behaviors through public education and advocacy.
The scientific palette of Fred Hutch is extensive; it has over 270 research scientists and 2,800 employees. Areas of research focus include hematologic malignancies, solid tumor biology, immunotherapy, early detection, tumor research, international research, fundamental science, cancer and prevention research as well as substantial programs in global oncology and HIV/AIDS. Additionally, given that the eradication of cancer and other life-threatening diseases is an ambitious goal that demands tenacity, scientific excellence, collaboration and breakthrough creativity, Fred Hutch has five scientific divisions working toward this end: Basic Sciences, Clinical Research, Human Biology, Public Health Sciences, and Vaccine and Infectious Disease. The Center has recently established crosscutting integrated research centers organized to promote team science involving members from two or more of the scientific divisions.
The Division Administrator is the administrative partner for the Division Director and Senior Vice President and oversees administrative services of the Basic Sciences Division.
Areas of broad responsibility include directing administration and operations, budget development and management, personnel management, divisional shared resources, space planning, pre- and post-award grants management activities, and facilitating staffing support to Division faculty. The Division Administrator is the key representative for the Division, for senior administrative decisions and policy development. The Division Administrator works with the Division Director and often a faculty executive leadership team to facilitate strategic planning and other Division-wide initiatives.
The Division Administrator reports directly to the Division Director and Senior Vice President.
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.
