Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first and largest cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network.

The Biobehavioral Sciences program investigates mechanisms and methods for integrating behavioral and biological components of care for cancer survivors during and following active treatment. Research includes improving measures of symptoms and patient reported outcomes, defining longitudinal outcomes and risk factors for cancer treatment, discovering biologic and behavioral markers for musculoskeletal and other long term complications in cancer survivors, and testing behavioral interventions for improving treatment outcomes. Members of Biobehavioral Sciences also provide clinical services in the Psychiatry/Psychology Consultation Service at the SCCA. Through research and patient services, the department’s goal is to optimize the ability of patients to participate in their own care and to have high quality of life during and after cancer treatment. We value a team approach to our work, in which each member contributes and shares in the responsibility for our projects.
