Dr. Denise Galloway

Dr. Denise Galloway is the associate director of the Human Biology Division and a member of the Public Health Sciences Division. She is also scientific director of Fred Hutch's Pathogen-Associated Malignancies Integrated Research CenterEarly in her career, Dr. Galloway became fascinated by the idea that a virus could lead to cancer by sparking changes within cells. This idea led her to study the human papilloma virus (HPV) and to make breakthrough contributions to a vaccine that prevents HPV and averts tens of thousands of cervical cancer cases each year.

    Appointments, affiliations and researcher interests.
  • Pathogen-Associated Malignancies Integrated Research Center
    The Pathogen-Associated Malignancies IRC brings together Hutch experts in infectious diseases, host-pathogen interactions, cancer biology, immunology, global oncology and immunotherapy to understand, treat and prevent the cancers linked to infectious agents.
  • The Galloway Lab
    Focus is on the mechanisms by which human papillomaviruses contribute to cancer, with an emphasis on types most likely to progress to cervical cancer. They work to understand the natural history of genital HPV infections and why only a small subset of women infected with high-risk HPVs develop cancer. 
  • Human Biology
    Grounded in high-quality basic science, the research performed in Human Biology blends fundamental, applied, and translational research performed in model organisms and in vitro systems.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first National Cancer Institute-funded cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network.
