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 Hutch\u2019s 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 nation\u2019s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women\u2019s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.
This position works with faculty and staff to facilitate investigator-initiated and pharmaceutical-sponsored clinical trials, identify research problems and design hypotheses to be tested. The individual will be responsible for independently designing and implementing multiple research projects to test the hypotheses in human subjects and facilitate laboratory correlative work.
The Clinical Research Coordinator will have daily interaction physicians, other health care personnel (e.g. nurses, patient care coordinators, insurance companies), patients, and with pharmaceutical sponsors. The individual is also required to use independent judgment, leadership and expert knowledge of the academic clinical trial healthcare operations to effectively facilitate the work flow and promote a collaborative work environment.
The position will maintain dynamic communication with the study investigators, research staff, numerous Fred Hutch, SCCA, and UW departments, federal agencies and industry partners. Additionally, the individual will be required to integrate information from multiple sources to ensure that all research proposals meet the requirements of FHCRC, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health and the study sponsor.
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.
