Bold Ideas Campaign

Your support helps us cure cancer faster

Bold ideas. World-changing innovation. Seattle’s iconic industries stand for those values. It’s why it makes sense that Fred Hutch’s pioneering discoveries are happening right here, in the Pacific Northwest.

As a world-renowned, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our research has spanned 40 years and saved lives around the world — from the curative use of bone marrow transplant that led to the latest in immunotherapy, to the work that led to the HPV vaccine, now saving tens of thousands of women from cervical cancer.

We are closer to answers than we have ever been. With your support, we can accelerate our work and cure cancer faster. Our ‘Bold Ideas’ campaign is intended to explain that urgency, while identifying Fred Hutch’s unique role in life-saving research.

YOUR DONATON HELPS US CURE CANCER FASTER


Immunotherapy

Fred Hutch is at the forefront of a fundamental shift in the way cancer is treated and cured. Thanks to our Nobel Prize-winning work on bone marrow transplantation as well as more recent breakthroughs, our researchers have discovered new ways to empower a patient’s own immune system to do what it does naturally — fight disease — with the potential for fewer side effects than conventional cancer treatments.

We've already used immunotherapy to boost survival rates for patients with leukemia and other blood cancers. And we've shown it has promise for treating many other cancers. These targeted therapies may one day replace blood stem cell transplantation as a cure for many blood cancers and become the first cures for some of the most challenging solid tumors, including lung, pancreatic and ovarian cancers. Learn more about our Immunotherapy research.

HIV Vaccine

Fred Hutch is leading the fight against HIV/AIDS through the pursuit of new and innovative prevention strategies, treatments and potential cures with active studies in the U.S., Africa, Latin America, China and Europe. Along with developing better treatment options for HIV, our researchers are crafting and testing HIV vaccines in hopes of preventing the infection altogether. Learn more about our HIV Vaccine research.

Venom

Fred Hutch researchers used a chemical from the venom of the deadly Deathstalker scorpion to create a molecular flashlight that lights up brain cancer cells during surgery, so they could be removed safely and completely. This discovery, called Tumor Paint, is being tested in clinical trials in partnership with Blaze Bioscience. Learn more about the story behind Tumor Paint.

Data Science

Data science is transforming many industries, in applications ranging from movie recommendations to self-driving cars. Health care, in contrast, has been relatively slow to reap benefits from big data. However, the promise of its impact on medicine is driving Fred Hutch to work with data at new scales and with new emphasis on collaboration across disciplines. Learn more about how Fred Hutch is working to bring innovative big data capabilities to all Hutch investigators.

Rock Stars

Fred Hutch celebrates our pioneering researchers who are shaping modern science and medicine. These researchers smashed barriers en route to medical history. With lifesaving discoveries – and a Nobel Prize – in their repertoire, they all have two things in common: a quest for cures at Fred Hutch and a commitment to inspiring the next generation of women scientists. Learn more about our Rock Stars.


HPV

Fred Hutch researchers worked to link HPV to cervical cancer and laid the groundwork for the HPV vaccine. By helping to eliminate one of the main causes of cervical cancer, Fred Hutch is making sure millions of women worldwide never have to face this disease. Learn more about our HPV vaccine work.

Gene Editing

Fred Hutch researchers are using genetically modified cells to shield cancer patients’ healthy cells from chemotherapy. This can lead to treatment that’s more powerful and effective. Researchers are also looking at how gene editing may help develop new therapies for HIV and certain genetic disorders, as well as how to make these emerging, high-tech treatments accessible and affordable. Learn more about our gene editing research.
