Integrating healthcare and research to transform the lives of people with cancer and organ transplants.

In order to catalyze multidimensional research related to cancer and organ transplant, Dr. Christopher Blosser and team members established the Center for Innovations in Cancer & Transplant in October 2021 at the University of Washington, in collaboration with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle, Washington.

The goals of the Center are:

  1. To provide outstanding multidisciplinary clinical care for pre- and post-transplant patients with cancer.

  2. To lead exceptional patient-focused research of cancer before and after organ transplant through a robust bioregistry and collaborative research network.

Purposefully commencing with kidney transplant patients, we will ultimately invite all solid organ transplant patients to join.
