The Cancer Consortium has compiled research support available at our partner institutions that leverage each organization's strengths to further premier research programs across many types of cancer and ensure the development of the next generation of scientists.  Our efforts encompasses basic science, prevention, early detection, treatment, and cancer survivorship

Key Support Programs

Clinical Research Support

Clinical Research Support oversees a group of resources available to investigators to support their research, simplify processes and enable regulatory compliance. It's mission is to ensure the conduct of efficient, compliant and high quality clinical research throughout the Cancer Consortium. 

Community Engaged Research

The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement (OCOE) Recruitment and Retention Resource is implementing training programs and resources to increase awareness for researchers to authentically include underrepresented groups from catchment populations in research and clinical trials. The OCOE can assist Consortium researchers with study design and recruitment by using culturally tailored approaches to promote participation in Consortium studies and trials.

Institutional Review Board

The Institutional Review Board, or IRB, reviews research activities involving human subjects to uphold ethical standards and to ensure research activities comply with all pertinent regulations and Fred Hutch policy. this includes biomedical and behavioral research.

Investigator Education

Clinical Research Support’s Research Investigator Strategic Education (RISE) program supports new faculty who will participate in and/or conduct interventional trials. 

Shared Resources

Shared Resources provide access to technologies, services, and consultation that facilitate scientific interaction and enhance scientific productivity. These resources support the research efforts of the Fred Hutchinson/University of Washington/Seattle Children's Cancer Consortium, providing services that advance cancer research.

Collaborating on scientific endeavors and patient-centered care.
