Dr. Scott Baker studies the short- and long-term health effects of blood stem cell or bone marrow transplants. His research has revealed important insights about the quality of life of cancer survivors. These include landmark studies of late-developing effects of childhood cancer treatment on the heart, lung, metabolic, kidney, hormone and reproductive systems. Dr. Baker also conducts clinical trials of blood stem cell transplant for young patients with non-malignant diseases like immune deficiencies. He directs the Fred Hutch programs in cancer survivorship and pediatric blood and marrow transplant. For Fred Hutch and Seattle Children’s Hospital, he also leads participation in the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study. This multi-institutional study has made major discoveries about the long-term health outcomes of childhood cancer survivors.
