Basic Sciences Division

Meetings / Clubs / Events

The Division hosts a network of informal meetings, clubs and seminars to encourage collaborations and foster the exchange of information and ideas. Our clubs are composed of scientists with common research interests. This collaborative approach to science naturally produces numerous publications jointly authored by members of different laboratories in the division.

Our Friday Evening seminar is a forum in which students, postdoctoral fellows, technicians and faculty present their work to the entire research community, followed by "beer chat".  A vigorous program of weekly seminars, presented by scientists from other institutions, makes sure that scientists keep in touch with the latest developments. In addition, the Basic Sciences faculty meets weekly to informally discuss their recent research.

Our seminar series is open to scientists from Fred Hutch and outside organizations.

structural biology group

Structural Biology Group
The structural biology group at FHCRC consists of two laboratories focused on the use of macromolecular crystallography (Barry Stoddard and Roland Strong) to determine the three-dimensional structures of biological macromolecules. These laboratories are complemented by several additional laboratories: one that is focused on computational structure prediction and design (Phil Bradley), one that conducts solution-based protein mapping studies of large complexes involved in gene transcription (Steve Hahn) and a third that conducts drug target validation and drug screening studies (Julian Simon).  A significant focus of the structural biology group is the exploitation of structural information to engineer macromolecules for therapeutic applications, including gene correction, vaccine development, and drug discovery.
