Fred Hutch - Uganda Cancer Institute Research Building, Kampala
WE ARE COMMITTED TO CURING CANCER FASTER... EVERYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD.
We have all had someone in our lives affected by cancer whether an acquaintance or a very close person in our lives and no one's life should be cut short due to this horrible disease. Here at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research center, we spend countless of hours pouring our hearts into fighting the beast that cancer is and doing any and everything to make sure that globally everyone is one step closer to better therapies.
Every day we get to wake up knowing that we get to work at a place that makes the impossible possible. The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is using cutting edge technology, innovation and teamwork of world leading experts and research in the fight against cancer. It is just right to give back to a place that gives so much to patients and their family and friends globally! Fred Hutch Global Oncology (GO), a Cross-Divisional program overseen by the Director’s Office at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, has a mission to generate cancer research that has global impact, and support the development of research capacity and clinical care to reduce the cancer burden in low-and middle-income countries. A cornerstone of the program is a decade-long alliance with the Uganda Cancer Institute (UCI) that advances research, capacity building, and cancer care in Uganda. Fred Hutch operates in Uganda as the Hutchinson Centre Research Institute of Uganda (HCRIU).
Fred Hutch Global Oncology is working to extend these advances to people around the world-- and this year we are celebrating 10 years of research collaboration with the Uganda Cancer Institute in Kampala.
