Nobel Laureate Lee Hartwell to Retire as President and Director of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in 2010
Date:6/26/2009

SEATTLE, June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center board of trustees today announced that its president and director, Lee Hartwell, Ph.D., plans to retire in June 2010. Hartwell, a recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, has been president and director of the Hutchinson Center since 1997.

"It's time," Hartwell said. "I have been president and director of the Center for 12 years. It's time for new leadership." Hartwell, who will turn 70 in October, says he informed the board's executive committee more than a year ago of his desire to retire and to begin the transition to new leadership. The exact timing of his departure was worked out over the last few months. The full board, faculty and staff were notified during the past two days.

Today's announcement was made by Doug Walker, chair of the Center's board of trustees, who said the search for Hartwell's successor will begin immediately. "Lee's leadership over these last 12 years has been extraordinary," Walker said. "It's hard for us to picture Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center without Lee at the helm. We're fortunate that Lee will be around to ensure that the transition to new leadership will be an extremely smooth one."

Walker says a search committee has been selected and it, in turn, will select a consultant to assist with the search. Board member Steve Davis, a senior adviser at McKinsey & Company, will head the search committee, which will also include members of the board and scientific faculty.

"The first thing we need to do is make a thorough assessment of the position and discuss the qualifications for the next Center leader with the Center's scientific faculty as well as community leadership," Walker said. "We'll use this information to determine the qualities and qualifications of the person we hope to recruit. Walker says there is no specific time frame attached to the search.
