Associate Director for Cancer Biology
Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research
Seattle Children's Research Institute
In 2020, Dr. Lawlor was recruited to Seattle where she is a professor of pediatrics and adjunct professor of pathology at the University of Washington and the associate director of cancer biology at Seattle Children’s Research Institute. Dr. Lawlor is also an affiliate member of the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center (FHCRC) and associate program leader for Cancer Basic Biology in the UW/FHCRC/SCH NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center Consortium. Dr. Lawlor’s research laboratory is focused on basic and translational biology of pediatric solid tumors, in particular Ewing sarcoma. The overall goal of the Lawlor lab is to discover and define differences between normal developmental and cancer biology that will enable discovery of targeted therapeutics that are less toxic to growing children.
