Dr. Andrew Hsieh is a physician-scientist who balances the clinical care of prostate and bladder cancer patients with running a research laboratory at Fred Hutch. He studies how cells build proteins — and how cancer cells can co-opt this process to better grow and spread. Through these studies his team aims to develop new drugs that can selectively target these changes and ultimately impact the lives of patients with cancer.

Research Interests

The goal of the Hsieh lab is to understand how deregulation of protein synthesis control determines the fate of epithelial cells in the multi-step process of tumor initiation and progression. Our long term goal is to merge our fundamental discoveries in translational control biology with the clinical needs of cancer patients.

"I want what I do to have a human impact...My goal is to be at the cutting edge of basic science research and innovative patient care while training the next generation of cancer biologists."
