The scientific community has reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic with unprecedented speed and cooperation. Key insights for saving lives are coming out of rapid genome sequencing, open data sharing and transparent scientific communications.
Grounded in experience with global health threats ranging from AIDS to Zika, our researchers are an important part of the international scientific response to the pandemic — tracking and modeling the virus' spread, detailing the immune response to the virus, conducting trials of vaccines and treatments, and working to prevent future outbreaks.
Fred Hutch and the COVID-19 Prevention Network created PreventCovidWA.org to help everyone in Washington understand the COVID-19 vaccines, and how they can help get people back to work and school as soon — and as safely — as possible. PreventCovidWA has videos and other content to help people find answers to their questions so they can make an informed decision about getting vaccinated.
Here are news, resources and information on the COVID-19 pandemic based our science and expertise:
Fred Hutch researchers are committed to ending the COVID-19 pandemic — from vaccines to developing COVID-19 diagnostic and serology tests to modeling the spread of the virus.
Researchers are working together to stop this pandemic and prevent the next one —
