Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutchs pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nations first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Womens Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.
A highly motivated Post-Doctoral research fellow is sought to carry out research in the laboratory of Dr. Denise Galloway at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA. Recent postdocs or graduate students at the end of their training program, who are eligible for participation in NIH-funded training grants and fellowships, are especially encouraged to apply.
About the Galloway Lab:
The primary focus of the Galloway lab is the role that small DNA viruses, such as human papillomavirus (HPV), and Merkel Cell polyomavirus (MCPyV) play in cancer. We have taken a broad approach including mechanistic studies into how viral oncoproteins contribute to neoplasia and molecular epidemiologic studies into the natural history of viral infections and risk factors associated with cancer development. We are currently studying 1) the long-term memory to HPV vaccination or infection; 2) mechanisms by which high-risk HPVs perturb the response to DNA damage.; and 3) the functions of a newly identified protein, ALTO, in the MCPyV life cycle.
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
