"Thirteen years together. During that time, our thrice-daily walking routine helped me come out of my cancer fog. Day-by-day, walk-by-walk, I came to realize I would likely achieve a normal life expectancy. "

Fred Hutch's Dr. Raphael Gottardo, a computational biologist who specializes in vaccine research, led an international research team that devised a unique, computational method to detect a tiny fraction of T cells in HIV-vaccine recipients. The cells, Gottardo's team found, were linked to a lower risk of infection. The team published its findings Monday in the journal Nature Biotechnology.
There are several kinds of immune responses that could protect against HIV infection. A new analysis has now found that a small but important subset of the immune cells known as T cells may be important for a working HIV vaccine.

Can music help ease pain and nausea in cancer patients? Researchers at Sloan Kettering are working with Pandora's chief musicologist Nolan Gasser to determine if cancer patients who undergo music therapy – which studies have shown can help ease discomfort -- fare better than patients who don’t. A fascinating read (and soothing listen) from VentureBeat.
Pandora chief musicologist Nolan Gasser was featured in a recent ESPN Films special, performing a composition he wrote based on music therapy research and the Music Genome Project to soothe the pain and anxiety of cancer patients.

"The best patient turnout we’ve had,” said Dr. Scott Ramsey, director of the Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research, or HICOR. “I’ve never had the experience where the advocates were kind of leading the conversation. That was amazing."
Cancer patients were the star participants at a palliative care summit held May 15 in Seattle. The Palliative Care Quality Measurement Summit, co-sponsored by Fred Hutch and the University of Washington, was the latest in a series of community meetings designed to increase value and decrease the human and financial cost of cancer care.

Her motivation: define what is scientifically unknown — and design the experiments that will let her and her lab teammates chip away at those mysteries. ‪#CuresStartHere

A team of 15 head chefs worked together to create a four-course meal at the 2015 Premier Chefs Dinner, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s annual celebration of Northwest food and wine. This year’s event drew 300 guests and raised more than $1.2 million to support immunotherapy and other cancer research at Fred Hutch. We take a peek at the chefs – and their hard work – behind the scenes of the event.

“The collaboration is not just the building, it’s the people,” said Fred Hutch Global Oncology Director Dr. Corey Casper.

On the day before the opening of the first comprehensive cancer center jointly constructed by U.S. and African institutions in sub-Saharan Africa, leaders of both the Uganda Cancer Institute and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center were clear about one thing: It’s not just about a building.

Her journey for #chemotherapy  spanned a 90-minute walk on a dirt path then a bumpy ride on a rutted road to reach the #Uganda  Cancer Institute in Kampala. Here's the tale of Naula's 130-mile trek - and her health now. #HutchInUganda  
Six-year-old Naula Kamondi's father traveled miles from their rural Uganda home to get her care for Burkitt lymphoma. Two pediatric cancer nurses and a Fred Hutch writer and photgrapher visit nearly a year later.

A new meta-analysis takes a hard look at #e-cigs as a tool for quitting smoking. Find out what Fred Hutch experts have to say about it. 
Science still lacks hard proof that electronic cigarettes help people quit smoking, concludes a new meta-analysis that bucks the fervent claims of many vaping disciples who swear e-cigs snuffed their tobacco addictions.
