In recognition of this year’s 8th annual Cancer Immunotherapy Month™, the Foundation coordinated with the Cancer Research Institute (CRI) – a leader in the field of cancer immunotherapy and important partner to the Foundation – throughout the month of June to help raise awareness of immunotherapy for all types of cancer and emphasize the role of focused ultrasound. The Foundation aims to reduce the time it takes for focused ultrasound and immunotherapy combination treatments to reach the clinic.
Awareness activities conducted for Cancer Immunotherapy Month included the following:
A June 24th webinar that featured Cancer Research Institute CEO, Jill O’Donnell-Tormey, PhD, and the Foundation’s Chief Scientific Officer, Jessica Foley, PhD, discussing the lifesaving potential of cancer immunotherapy and the ways that CRI and the Foundation are working together to advance exciting research, through a lens of the new COVID-19 environment. To date, the webinar has reached more than 1,000 people.
A dedicated web page, “Cancer Immunotherapy at a Glance” provides links and periodic updates on the Foundation’s efforts to accelerate the powerful intersection of focused ultrasound and cancer immunotherapy.
The launch of a five-year, $5 million campaign to support research on focused ultrasound’s role in the immune-based treatment of cancer. Learn more >
