As a world leader in both cancer and infectious-disease research, Fred Hutch is uniquely positioned to address the worldwide cancer epidemic by translating our four decades of scientific exploration into new prevention and treatment strategies.
Our decade-long collaboration with the Uganda Cancer Institute has yielded a new facility, tools and treatments that will save lives in low-resource countries worldwide. Patients now have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic and clinical care while researchers will have a place to develop new therapies.
Our collaboration with China CDC and Henan Institute focus on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, infectious diseases and other health burdens. It also features the development of a cancer tumor tissue repository that will allow scientists to conduct molecular analyses.
The first comprehensive cancer center jointly built by U. S. and African cancer institutions in sub-Saharan Africa is now open. The state-of-the-art facility brings all of the alliance’s work under one roof, accommodating 20,000 outpatient visits a year as well as housing laboratories and ample space for meetings and conferences.
