“Unfortunately, cancer has been a presence in my life since I was a child. Many people in my family suffered because of it, and many friends, too. Providing care for people with cancer allows me to help.”

— Dr. Iovino

What brought you to Fred Hutch?

Top research also means top care. To me, care is a mixture of knowledge, readiness and empathy. Harnessing the immune system against cancer cells can be a potential cure for many types of cancer. I also study the reconstitution of the immune system after cancer-related treatments.

What patient moment sticks with you?

After several cycles of therapy, and after a long time in the hospital for an autologous bone marrow transplant, I was happy to hear that a 70-year-old patient was able to get back to riding their bike.
