Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington Cancer Consortium recently received $9.8 million this year in the form of a Cancer Center Support Grant from the NIH. Corey Lawrence, President of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, was also listed as the project’s leader. According to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center website, Lawrence is an internationally respected expert in virology, immunology and vaccine development whose research focuses on herpes viruses, HIV and other viral infections, especially those connected with cancer.
The NIH RePORTER provides details about the Fred Hutchinson/University of Washington Cancer Consortium in the project’s abstract:
“The Fred Hutchinson/University of Washington Cancer Consortium (Consortium), formed in 2002, is a partnership of: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center since 1976 and a CCSG grant recipient since 1973; the University of Washington; and Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center. The Consortium brings together more than 400 faculty with research interests in basic, clinical and public health sciences related to cancer, with total NCI funding of $73 million (direct costs). The goal of the Consortium is the elimination of cancer through more effective prevention, diagnostics, and treatment, deriving from fundamental insights into the biology of the disease. The extensive interdisciplinary collaboration between the three institutions in the cancer research disciplines of basic, clinical, and public health sciences affords new opportunities to reduce suffering and mortality from cancer.”
