Hutch Advance - Shared Resources

The Hutch Advance-Shared Resources Program is a five-week program, specifically designed for students from Bellevue College studying molecular biomedical sciences.

Students will attend Fred Hutchison Cancer Center one day a week for five weeks, participating in experiential learning in five separate areas: flow cytometry, proteomics, experimental histopathology, preclinical modeling and preclinical imaging/comparative medicine. Students will meet experts in each area to analyze scientific case study data and view experiments in progress. Benefits for participants include developing new professional networks and resources.

The program will run on Tuesdays, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., from June 28 to July 26, 2022. Students must be able to commit to this entire period to participate.

While we are planning to hold an on-site experience, we are monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and assessing the safest way for students and staff to participate in the program.  Participants will be notified of any changes if needed.
