National Cancer Moonshot Initiative

National Cancer Moonshot Initiative

The National Cancer Moonshot initiative aims to bring together some of the brightest scientific minds in the country — and beyond — to accelerate cancer cures. This historic and ambitious effort will require the knowledge, tenacity and, most of all, the cooperation of multiple stakeholders: cancer patients and researchers, physicians and pharmaceutical companies, data scientists and policymakers, insurance companies and federal agencies.

Collaboration is crucial to its success, just as it has been crucial to the success of Fred Hutch, our consortium partners — University of Washington, Seattle Children’s and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance — and all of our research partnerships for over 40 years.

We look forward to working with Vice President Joe Biden and others in the years ahead to help eradicate cancer as a leading cause of human suffering and death.
