Thomas Varghese Jr. , MD

Email: tkv@u.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 744-8744

Dr. Varghese's clinical interests are in benign and malignant disease of the lungs, esophagus, chest wall and mediastinum; thoracic trauma; and minimally invasive applications for general thoracic surgery. He is dedicated to the education of healthcare providers, patients, medical students, residents and fellows and is a core faculty member of the Institute of Simulation and Interprofessional Studies (ISIS). Dr. VargheseΓÇÖs research interests include methods to promote the uptake of research findings into healthcare (implementation science); educational interventions for patient-centered care; and surgical outcomes and quality of care research using population-based data, cost & utility analyses and patient-derived outcomes.

Joshua Veatch , MD, PhD

Email: jveatch@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-5108

For Dr. Veatch, not only does he see patients in clinic at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, but he is also involved in clinical research. He currently works with Dr. Stanley Riddell in the clinical research division at the Fred Hutch, working to develop new immune therapies to help patients with melanoma. In one project, they are developing a new type of cancer vaccine targeted at the mutations specific to a patient's cancer, in order to strengthen T-cell responses to fight the cancer.

Trang VoPham , PhD, MPH, MS

Email: tvopham@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-2642

Dr. VoPham is an epidemiologist and geospatial scientist whose research focuses on understanding the role of place or location — particularly environmental exposures — in cancer. She integrates methods in cancer epidemiology, environmental epidemiology and geospatial science, including geographic information systems, or GIS, and remote sensing technologies, to study how environmental exposures might impact the risk of developing cancer. Her research includes epidemiologic studies examining the associations between particulate matter air pollution, dioxin, pesticides, radon, ultraviolet radiation, and circadian misalignment and the risk of liver, breast and lung cancer using data from the Nurses’ Health Studies; SEER; and SEER-Medicare. Dr. VoPham is also an expert in developing environmental exposure models using geospatial methods for exposure assessment in epidemiologic studies.

Wei Wei , PhD

Email: wwei@systemsbiology.org

Phone: (206) 732-1221

The Wei group works in the highly cross-disciplinary field of BioMEMS, molecular and cellular analysis, and systems biomedicine. These joint efforts allow us to integrate single cell technologies with other biotechnological tools and computational approaches to investigate cutting-edge cancer biology questions with a balance between discovery and clinical translation. Specifically, we are interested in the following three areas: 1) Single-cell multi-omics tools and associated multivariate computational approaches for interrogating the heterogeneous tumor cells and immune cells at multiple bimolecular levels; 2) Epigenetic remodeling and signaling network dynamics associated with cell state transition and resistance development in epigenetically plastic tumors; 3) Liquid biopsy-based rare cell analysis for cancer metastasis and immunotherapy.

Lue-Ping Zhao , PhD

Email: lzhao@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-6927

Being trained in biostatistics/bioinformatics, epidemiology and genetics, Dr. Zhao's current interest in STTR includes how to use omics methodology to dissect solid tumor etiology and mechanism with either expression arrays, SNP arrays, or short-read sequencing methods. Further, he is interested in utilizing large and complex electronic medical records with modern genomic technologies for translational bioinformatics studies.

Steven Ziegler , PhD

Email: sziegler@benaroyaresearch.org

Phone: (206) 287-5657

The projects in Dr. Ziegler’s laboratory are focused on the factors that control normal immune regulation, as well as those that contribute to disease development and progression. The laboratory is currently engaged in two areas of investigation: the genes and cell populations that are involved in controlling autoimmune-type responses, and the role of epithelial cytokines (TSLP, IL-25, and IL-33) in the regulation of barrier responses to infection and allergen challenge. Finally, they have also found a novel role for TSLP in the regulation of tumor progression, and have established a program in tumor biology, including metastatic breast cancer, colitis-associated cancer and melanoma.
