The Hutch Data Commonwealth (HDC) is a novel organization created to establish the next-generation infrastructure capabilities in support of research efforts at Fred Hutch that are expected to become increasingly data-intensive over the next three to five years. The HDC brings data engineering, data integration, database development, natural language processing, machine learning, bioinformatics and medical informatic skills together.  

Partnership is key — Our success in accelerating research is through collaboration and partnerships with other research institutions and technology providers. We are seeking partners.  Contact us if you are ready to take the next step.
