Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is a world leader in research to prevent, detect and treat cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Fred Hutch has been at the forefront of disease research since being founded in 1975. The Hutch was a vision of two brothers, Dr. William Hutchinson, a Seattle surgeon, and Fred Hutchinson, a baseball hero.

Our mission is the elimination of cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. Fred Hutch conducts research of the highest standards to improve prevention and treatment of cancer and related diseases.

Fred Hutch’s 15-acre campus includes a new visitor center to display our research and build community through sharing stories and state-of-the-art facilities that accelerate our scientific progress.
