Welcome to the Cancer Vaccine Institute

The Cancer Vaccine Institute at UW Medicine in Seattle, WA, is a collaboration of scientists, doctors, nurses, patients and philanthropists, all determined to eliminate cancer. Our mission is to diagnose, prevent and treat cancer by developing immune system-based approaches, ones that bring the power of precision medicine and cancer immunology out of the lab and into the lives of people with cancer or at high risk for cancer.

We are especially focused on developing vaccines to prevent cancers responsible for millions of deaths and enormous healthcare costs — breast, colon, ovarian, prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers — and to prevent cancer relapse. Cancer vaccines are ideally suited to both primary and secondary cancer prevention.
