Science Says

Join us for Science Says on Wednesday, October 12, to hear from scientists and clinicians who are shaping groundbreaking treatment approaches as unique as the people who need them.

Every cancer is different, from its molecular makeup to the supportive microenvironment it creates. Precision oncology seeks to understand the seemingly infinite factors that distinguish each person’s disease and use that knowledge to personalize risk-reduction and treatment strategies. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center is applying our research expertise in both immunotherapy and cellular biology to advance this rapidly evolving field — an endeavor that has been accelerated by a recent $78 million gift to establish the Stuart and Molly Sloan Precision Oncology Institute and plan for the construction of a new research building on our South Lake Union campus named in their honor.

Our Science Says panelists will discuss precision oncology’s potential for personalizing treatments to each person living with cancer, how it could revolutionize risk-reduction strategies, and what it will take to design and build a robust data science infrastructure to support it. Be sure to bring your questions!
