Partnerships are a key part of the CCTR mission. Our researchers collaborate with their colleagues at Seattle Children’s, across the nation and around the world in pursuit of innovative health solutions.
CCTR is the pediatric home of the Institute of Translational Health Sciences, and we partner regularly with the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Developing innovative treatments to potentially prevent and cure childhood illnesses takes more than just the right ideas. It also takes the right people. We are constantly seeking experienced leaders and enthusiastic emerging professionals who embrace collaboration and are committed to improving child health.
