We are excited to announce the expansion of STTR programing to include liquid tumor entities within STTR. Desert Horse-Grant will now focus on translational “cancer” research under one umbrella. Four new liquid and one additional solid tumor group into STTR: leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes/myeloproliferative neoplasms, and anogenital cancers.

STTR Newsletter, Spring 2015
The new year brings new opportunities for our scientists and the world. We were extremely encouraged by the wonderful turnout and community support at the Hutch Gala on December 6, 2014. The money raised at the gala will provide the needed support for innovative and translational research at Fred Hutch. 2015 started with the launch of two new STTR initiatives: STTRconnect and Oncoscape.
