Basic research is at the foundation of all scientific discoveries, underlying the innovative cures and treatments developed at Fred Hutch. Founded in 1981, the Basic Sciences Division has continually evolved to be at the forefront of discovery; seeking to understand the fundamental underpinnings of our own biology as well as the dysregulations that cause disease. Our research has yielded numerous landmark breakthroughs and scientific advances. We believe an inclusive, collaborative, egalitarian and creative environment is the basis for scientific innovation and world-changing discoveries.
Our Commitmemt to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Fred Hutch stands with the victims and families of police brutality and systemic racism inherent in the United States. We believe that Black Lives Matter.
As a division we are committed to dismantling structural racism in science, diversifying our workforce and ensuring that all the members of the division have a supportive environment. As part of these ongoing efforts, trainees in the division have initiated the creation of a discussion group that will help us continually engage with, learn about, and challenge discrimination. We encourage everyone in the division to participate in events and activities aligned with these goals.
