Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center unites comprehensive care and advanced research to provide the latest cancer treatment options and accelerate discoveries that prevent, treat and defeat cancer and infectious diseases worldwide.
Years of Lifesaving Research
Our history began with the vision and promise of Seattle surgeon Dr. William Hutchinson, brother of baseball hero Fred Hutchinson.
At Fred Hutch, we’re driven by the urgency for new ways to prevent, treat and defeat cancer and infectious diseases worldwide. To offer better options and new hope to those facing cancer, we look beyond what research and patient care teams can do on their own to what they can do together. Beyond the boundaries of today's science to the outer reaches of our imaginations. Beyond today's best treatments to new revelations that can overcome cancer once and for all.
Creativity has always been a part of Dr. Vida Henderson’s DNA. The public health researcher’s work involves listening and learning about peoples’ experiences, trying to discover what’s meaningful to them and then tailoring scientific programs and interventions that address these issues.
Translational breast cancer researcher Dr. Cyrus Ghajar is working to identify how cancer cells can break off from a tumor and find new homes in distant organs, where they can lie quiet for months, years or decades before rousing and sparking growth of new tumors.
Join us for a celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day and the unveiling of the second installation of the Public Art & Community Dialogue Program, created by artist and storyteller Roger Fernandes.
This event is outdoors and free to the public. Light refreshments will be available.
