New direction

Like father...

Joe Hutchinson poses in front of the painting of his father, Fred Hutchinson, as he visits the Hutch campus on Sept. 17, 2014.

The first thing you notice about Joe Hutchinson is how much he looks like his father: the same rough-cut facial features and powerful jaw.

However, the thing we learned about Joe when he visited was how much of an impact his uncle Bill Hutchinson, founder of Fred Hutch, had on him.
