Andy Hill CARE Fund

CARE Fund Announces Grant Awards Totaling $1.74M

Feb 8, 2023

Distinguished Researchers grants bolster cancer research in Washington State by providing matching funds to recruit best-in-class talent from around the globe, and support newly recruited researchers to lead advances in cancer research. Top scientists move the research economy forward, creating laboratories and other jobs, raising awareness of cancer research, and bringing additional research funding into the state.

The Distinguished Researchers Program will match, dollar for dollar, commitments by Washington research companies, organizations, universities, and research institutions, up to $500,000 per researcher, to add value to recruitment/start-up packages that bring early-career and established cancer researchers to Washington.  

The CARE Fund Board of Directors is pleased to announce three Distinguished Researchers grant awards to the following:  

  • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center
    Christina Termini, MM, PhD
  • Seattle Children’s Research Institute
    Jay Sarthy, MD, PhD
  • Seattle Children’s Research Institute
    Molly Taylor MD, MS, MS

Learn more about the Distinguished Researchers awardees.

Originally sparked by the need to nimbly respond to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on cancer care, Emergent Issues in Public Health grants provide up to $250,000 per award to support research that aims to address an emergent issue regarding cancer and public health. Research may relate to the next phase of COVID-19 and cancer research, or other cancer research related to an emergent public health issue.

The CARE Fund Board of Directors is pleased to announce an Emergent Issues in Public Health grant to: 

  • University of Washington (Principal Investigator: Linda Ko, MPH, PhD)
    “Building Capacity of Bilingual and Bicultural Community Health Workers to Implement Evidence-based Cancer Prevention and Control Interventions to Promote Health Equity”

The CARE Fund applauds these awardees for their important work to advance cancer research to improve the quality of life for the people of Washington.
