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.
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.
Our new research and clinical care facility in Kampala, Uganda, is nearly completed. When it opens in 2015, patients will have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic and clinical care while researchers will have a place to develop new therapies.
