IPCR team

Sci­en­tists and physi­cians at UW Med­i­cine and Fred Hutchin­son Can­cer Research Cen­ter, two Seattle-based insti­tu­tions that excel in med­ical dis­cov­ery and patient care, have formed the Insti­tute for Prostate Can­cer Research (IPCR).

A natural outgrowth of established medical research and clinical collaborations, the IPCR brings together a world-renowned team of scientists and clinicians whose mission is to understand the causes of prostate cancer and its progression, develop new prevention strategies, devise innovative diagnostics and improve survival and quality of life.The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) unites health-care professionals from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine andSeattle Children’s to form a world-class treatment center that provides advanced therapies and clinical studies for cancers and other blood disorders.
