“I want to help improve cure rates for childhood cancer and increase the quality of life for children and families overcoming cancer.”

— Dr. Chow

What are your goals as a researcher?

I focus on survivors of childhood cancers to help them live healthier lives by preventing, detecting and treating late effects of cancer therapies. I am interested in better understanding the burden and risk factors for cardiovascular outcomes after childhood cancer therapy and stem cell transplantation.

Clinical Trials

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch physicians. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your physician can decide if a study is right for you.

Many of our Fred Hutch physicians conduct ongoing research to improve standards of patient care. Their work is evaluated by other physicians and selected for publication to the United States National Library of Medicine, the largest medical library in the world.
