About Fred Hutch
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s teams of world-renowned scientists work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch was founded by surgeon Dr. Bill Hutchinson, who named the center for his late brother, baseball legend Fred Hutchinson.
Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation has helped pave the way to new immunotherapies, which harnesses the power of the immune system to overcome cancer and other diseases. Fred Hutch is also home to the nation’s first National Cancer Institute–funded cancer prevention research program as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative. Our researchers — including three Nobel laureates — bring a relentless passion to their work and deliver hope to patients around the world.
In July 2019, Fred Hutch acquired Cook for Your Life to serve as an important resource for science-based cancer nutrition while expanding research into cancer prevention and survivorship. By conducting research in partnership with the Cook for Your Life community, Fred Hutch scientists aim to learn the best ways to deliver culinary and nutrition information to cancer patients, their families and their caregivers in order to improve their overall health. Cook for Your Life will continue to offer the great tips for healthy lifestyles, cooking how-tos and recipes for balanced, nutritious diets that you’ve come to expect.
