  • Overview of Chu Chen's Research
    As an epidemiologist, Chen's research is addressing cancers of the breast, endometrium, lung, prostate, testes and head and neck.
  • Chen Lab
    Investigators in the Chen lab are evaluating of environmental factors, genome-wide data on single nucleotide polymorphisms, heterozygosities, gene copy number alterations, gene expression profiles, and tissue microarray data, we hope to determine the links between environmental and genetic factors and the development of – and/or survival from – tobacco- and hormone-related cancers.
  • Public Health Sciences Division
    Using large populations as our laboratory, our researchers look for links between cancer and its possible triggers, from diet and lifestyle to environmental and genetic factors.
  • Epidemiology Program
    Fred Hutch's epidemiology program is aimed at understanding the factors that influence the incidence, distribution, and control of cancer and other harmful diseases within the human population.
