Areas of Focus

  • Immunotherapy Clinical Trials for Leukemia and Neuroblastoma

    We are developing treatments that use the immune system to eliminate cancer without chemotherapy or radiation. The Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research has launched promising new clinical trials that reprogram a child’s own immune cells to fight cancer with far less side effects.

  • Brain Tumor Program

    Our Brain Tumor Program provides compassionate, comprehensive care for children, adolescents and young adults who have tumors in their brain or spinal cord. We are the largest pediatric brain tumor center in the Northwest and one of the busiest in the United States.

  • Top Outcomes

    Survival rates at Seattle Children’s are higher than the national average for all forms of childhood cancer combined.

  • Bone Marrow Transplant

    Seattle Children’s offers hematopoietic cell transplant (bone marrow transplant) to young patients through our partnership with Fred Hutch. Each year, we perform transplants for approximately 50 children and teens.
