Featured Technology

Colon Cancer Biomarkers

The Lampe Lab at Fred Hutch has identified and validated a five-protein panel for early detection of colon cancer and adenoma. Two independent studies have confirmed this biomarker panel. Colon cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S.; about 150,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. Early detection dramatically increases the odds of survival.

Integrated Research Centers

Our three integrated research centers are launchpads for novel immunotherapies, vaccines and technologies that have strong commercial potential. Bringing together top talent from multiple disciplines, they enable the efficient translation of scientific insights into real-world solutions.

Our investigators and research partners have access to a suite of cutting-edge services and programs that help them get to discoveries faster. They include specialized facilities and equipment, integrated research centers, powerful data science infrastructure and computational advisory services.

Featured Partnership

Juno Therapeutics

The pioneering immunotherapy company Juno Therapeutics was founded in 2013 as a partnership between Fred Hutch, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Center and Seattle Children’s Research Institute, licensing cutting-edge research from all three institutions. It launched with $120 million in private investment funding, making it one of the largest biotech startups in history. Juno initially targeted blood cancers but has expanded its focus to include some solid-tumor cancers, such as colorectal cancer and certain sarcomas, in further partnership with Fred Hutch investigators.
