Outcome Research in hematological malignancies can inform the decision-making process for treatment of these malignancies. It involves clinical and population-based studies meant to optimize the benefits of healthcare to the patient and society. This can include testing, developing, and validation methods and tools to predict treatment outcomes; understanding patients experiences, preferences and values for treatment of cancer; and generating evidence to determine which interventions work best for which types of patients and under what circumstances.
The Principal Investigator (PI) conducts several multi-center clinical studies aimed at developing tools and information to guide choices of therapy in vulnerable (older or with numerous medical problems) patients with hematological malignancies and to better evaluate the usefulness of a treatment approach like hematopoietic cell transplantation. We value a team approach to our work, in which each member contributes and shares in the responsibility for our projects.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
