Health Disparities Research Center
The Health Disparities Research Center (HDRC) is designed to enhance collaboration with and among Fred Hutch and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance programs and create a forum that enables health disparities' researchers to work together.
Public Health Sciences Division
Using large populations as their laboratory, public-health researchers look for links between cancer and its possible triggers, from diet and lifestyle to environmental and genetic factors.
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network.
