Nobel Laureates Circle

Nobel Laureates Circle

The Nobel Laureates Circle recognizes benefactors who have made cumulative gifts of $1 million or more to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. These key contributors are permanent members of the Circle which was established to honor Fred Hutch's Nobel Prize recipients, Drs. E. Donnall Thomas (1990), Lee Hartwell (2001) and Linda Buck (2004). By giving at this level, members of the Nobel Laureates Circle are at the forefront of philanthropic leadership and make a significant impact on Fred Hutch's mission to eliminate cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death.
