Fred Hutch Research Study Exploring the Common Cold

Do you have a lot of colds and wonder why? Do you never get colds? If you are around kids and want to help us answer these questions, please join our study.

Help us understand why some people get sick from the common cold more than others. We are currently recruiting about 200 people to participate in our study. We hope that this study may provide information to help with designing a vaccine for Rhinovirus or for other viruses. Rhinoviruses are responsible for causing 30-50% of common colds.  Some people report getting a lot of colds each year while others report never getting sick.

This study will compare the immune response to the common cold (rhinovirus) between people who feel like they rarely have cold symptoms versus those who have them more often.  We hope that by closely following the body’s specific immune responses in someone who has exposure to the common cold, we can better understand which responses may be required for a successful vaccine against the common cold.

SLU Wednesday Lunch Market

We’re thrilled to add a sister market every Wednesday at Lake Union Park located near MOHAI in South Lake Union starting June 5th showcasing the best street food, purveyors, and makers this summer!

Over 25 booths serving up curbside cuisine, sweet treats and delicious snacks from food trucks and seven pop-ups all with a great view.

DJ’s and lawn games are a great way to get out for lunch and relax this summer, so swing by for the best eats in town.

Take a break, grab lunch, and relax at South Lake Union’s own Lake Union Park by MOHAI!
