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. The mission of Fred Hutch is the elimination of cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. We believe that immunotherapy, particularly adoptive T cell therapies, are at the forefront of these curative treatments for cancer patients. C
