Job detail

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’s 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 located in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first cancer avoidance research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.


The Hutchinson Institute for Cancer results Research (HICOR) takes an innovative approach to improve the effectiveness of cancer avoidance, treatment and therapy while stemming the high costs of cancer care. HICOR’s diverse portfolio includes federally and privately funded research projects investigating a variety of aspects of the cancer practice in the community, including patterns of screening, treatment, and treatment decision making, with particular interest in health care economics and results. HICOR also has practice in designing and performing cost-effectiveness analyses of drugs, devices, and interventions, with an eye towards supporting public and private decision making to maximize health value under resource constraints.

About the Value in Cancer Care Initiative

Since its inception in 2014, HICOR has been developing a community engagement program called the Value in Cancer Care (VCC) Initiative. The VCC Initiative engages a regional network of patient and stakeholder partners in a range of activities, including 1) identifying shared priorities for improving cancer care, 2) characterizing community performance relative to shared priorities through the generation of performance metrics, and 3) engaging the community in designing and implementing community-located Cancer Care Delivery Research (CCDR) experiments that test interventions aimed at improving performance for all providers in the network. The network is comprised of 30+ patient partners and 75 stakeholder partners representing the majority of oncology practices, as well as public and private health insurers in Washington State. The network serves as a valuable and unique resource for generating pilot data and testing promising interventions that could benefit the community in partnership with commercial and industry collaborators.
