​​At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, our interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Our researchers, including three Nobel laureates, bring a relentless pursuit of, and passion for, health knowledge and hope to their work and the world.

Together, our researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, when cure rates are highest; developing effective treatments with fewer side effects; and learning how to prevent cancers from growing in the first place.

Our groundbreaking discoveries began in the 1970s with Dr. E. Donnall Thomas’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation, which led to him receiving the 1990 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. Since then, Hutchinson Center researchers have made a number of breakthroughs, including developing immunotherapies that use the immune system to defeat cancer and advancing the understanding of human biology.

Admittedly, the eradication of cancer and other life-threatening diseases is an ambitious goal, one that demands tenacity, scientific excellence, collaboration and breakthrough creativity. To accomplish this, the Hutchinson Center attracts some of the world's greatest minds.

Our roster of internationally acclaimed scientists includes a MacArthur fellow, seven members of the National Academy of Sciences, five members of the Institute of Medicine, six members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, nine members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and eight current and former Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators.

The Hutchinson Center understands that disease research means more than searching for new treatments. We are home to the country's largest and oldest cancer prevention program, which has made key contributions to understanding how diet, exercise and other factors reduce the risk of acquiring the disease.

To accelerate our progress, we are part of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center / University of Washington Cancer Consortium. This research and clinical collaboration between the Hutchinson Center, the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance enables our researchers to leverage each institution’s strengths and develop premier research programs across many types of disease. The Consortium is among 40 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers nationwide.
