Fred Hutch (FH), a world leader in the detection, diagnosis, and prevention of cancer, has two clinical manufacturing facilities within the Therapeutic Products Program (TPP) . The two discreet manufacturing facilities are the Cellular Processing Facility (CPF) and the Biologics Production Facility (BPF). Both facilities operate under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and provide translational services that enable complex research treatments to progress from the lab to bedside. All products manufactured at Fred Hutch support Phase I and II clinical trials that require sophisticated manufacturing techniques. Due to the extensive training required to support clinical manufacture of these therapeutic products, TPP requires a Training Coordinator.
The TPP Training Coordinator responsibilities include working with CPF and BPF Management and Quality Assurance to identify training needs and mapping out development plans for TPP teams. The Training Coordinator will assess, plan, develop, coordinate, monitor and evaluate training completion. The successful candidate will train, or oversee training, of in-house employees as well as customers and contractors when appropriate.

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.
