Living & Working in Seattle


Seattle, and the Center for Infectious Disease Research, are home to some of the most cutting-edge global health research anywhere in the world. Scientists working in Washington have produced no fewer than 13 Nobel Prizes in the last half century. Today, Seattle is the epicenter of global health research with dozens of organizations based in the city.


Seattle is also an incredible place to live. With endless outdoor activities, such as kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, and skiing, it’s no wonder Seattle is ranked as one of America’s most active cities. Some of the best public schools and youth organizations are also found in the Seattle metro area. Learn more about living in the Emerald City here.
