New website launched to feature Solid Tumor Translational Research
By Susan Edmonds
A new Solid Tumor Translational Research (STTR) website marks a major milestone of collaboration and coordination between Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine, Seattle Children’s Hospital and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Its unique organizational structure is multidisciplinary and organ site based, bringing clinicians and researchers together to focus on specific cancer types.
The website showcases the strengths of our programs and features faculty providing patient care and solid tumor cancer research. It has information and features that will be useful to both internal and external researchers, prospective patients and the general public.
Spearheaded by Desert Horse-Grant, director of strategic planning and operations for solid tumor translational research, the website will support Dr. Eric Holland’s vision to enhance world-class translational research programs for brain and other solid-tumor cancers across our institutions.
“Our job is to foster the collaborations that already exist and make them faster, more transparent and more likely to result in affecting the standard of care.” said Dr. Eric Holland, director of the Human Biology division and Solid Tumor Translational Research.
