Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Cures start here.

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.

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.
