Obliteride always feels lucky to have University Village as our anchor sponsor and events like Shop & Dine to Make a Difference give us one more reason to count our lucky stars.
Monday night I had the honor of attending the Seattle Business Leaders in Healthcare awards dinner
. The room was filled with talented researchers, clinicians, community medical professionals and others connected to advancing understanding of health and healthcare locally and globally. It was a reminder of the brain trust we house here in Seattle and the ongoing need to nurture it through funding, recognition and personal thank you’s when we get the chance.
Amazing things happen inside the walls of Fred Hutch. And when there’s an opportunity to translate discovery into something with commercial viability, Fred Hutch has done an incredible job launching biotech start-ups. The conversion of lab science to commercial work is important for a few specific reasons.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re thinking it’d be fun to spread the Obliteride love with special Obliteride valentines. Here’s how it works...
Fred Hutch has clearly established itself as a global leader in cancer research. Some global discoveries were mentioned in last week’s blog
. What makes those findings so valuable is that they quickly extended beyond the lab and into the clinical environment through our clinical partners, Seattle Children’s and the University of Washington Medical Center, which together with Fred Hutch create the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA).
Over the next few weeks, we’re going to focus on the vital need to support local cancer research, because when someone you know around here gets cancer, you’re going to want to know that the best doctors, researchers, answers and care are available right here. And they are.

I was amazed at how well organized this was especially considering it was the first annual event.
So Friday night my teammates couldn't make it so I went into the evening a little disappointed but it all got better when my wife and I got there.
