Research and/or clinical interests 

Dr. Andrew Hsieh is a physician-scientist who balances the clinical care of prostate and bladder cancer patients with running a research laboratory at Fred Hutch. He studies how cells build proteins — and how cancer cells can co-opt this process to better grow and spread. Through these studies his team aims to develop new drugs that can selectively target these changes and ultimately impact the lives of patients with cancer.  The Hsieh lab seeks to understand how deregulation of protein synthesis control determines the fate of epithelial cells in the multi-step process of tumor initiation and progression. The team’s long term goal is to merge fundamental discoveries in translational control biology with the clinical needs of cancer patients.
