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 Hutchs pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nations first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Womens Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.
The Program in Prostate Cancer Research and the Division of Human Biology seek a Research Technician to execute bench laboratory work in Dr. Peter Nelsons Lab. Job duties will focus on in vivo and in vitro experiments in support of prostate cancer research, including diverse drug studies on murine patient-derive xenografts as well as genetically-modified cell lines, and measuring molecular changes at a protein, DNA, and RNA level. The use of a broad range of techniques and methods to determine genetic and epigenetic factors governing therapy response and resistance in advanced prostate cancer will be employed. This individual will work independently under the guidance of, and in conjunction with, a Staff Scientist and Principal Investigator to accomplish the goals of the laboratory and project.
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
