Throughout the month of March, Safeway and Albertsons throughout Washington, Northern Idaho and Alaska will highlight UW Medicine’s Cancer Vaccine Institute in their check stand fundraiser. All proceeds from this check stand campaign will benefit the Institute’s breakthrough research.

The Cancer Vaccine Institute is the largest academic research group dedicated to the development of cancer vaccines. The Institute has seen promising results in human clinical trials using vaccines to treat and prevent cancer and its recurrence. The Institute is currently developing vaccines for ovarian, prostate, breast, lung, colorectal, bladder and pancreatic cancers.
