$16 Million in Federal Stimulus Funding Establishes Seattle as a Hub of Comparative-Effectiveness Research In Cancer

$4 million project based at the Hutchinson Center and led by Ramsey, a member of the Center's Public Health Sciences Division and a professor of medicine at UW School of Medicine, will fund the development of an infrastructure to support the "Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research in Cancer Genomics," or CANCERGEN.

"Realizing that vision will go a long way to help achieve the health care reform goal of making cancer treatment more effective and less expensive," he said. Researchers at the UW School of Pharmacy and the Center for Medical Technology Policy in Baltimore will co-lead the effort.
