Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, is an independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle. Its interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.
A group in the Clinical Research Division is seeking a full-time Staff Scientist . The Sorror group conducts several multi-center clinical studies aimed at developing tools and information to guide choices of therapy in vulnerable patients with blood cancer and to better evaluate the usefulness of different treatment approaches including hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Studies also include interventions meant to support treatment of primary cancer but focusing on other health limitations. These interventions include supportive and palliative care and comorbidity-specific life-style modifying modules. We value a team approach to our work, in which each member contributes and shares in the responsibility for our projects.
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.
