In 2012, Fred Hutchinson was awarded $223.9 million by the NSF and NIH. The NSF awarded the center $878,057 in research funding. The NSF-funded projects span a number of programs in the life science field, including evolutionary processes, behavioral systems and genetic mechanisms.
In addition to receiving NSF funding, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center was awarded $223 million in research funding by the NIH in 2012. The departments receiving funding included a variety of research disciplines, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center was given 249 awards in total.
