Cancer Research Institute
The Cancer Research Institute is motivated by a very simple but important scientific fact: the human body has the ability to defend itself from cancer. The mission is straightforward - Save more lives with cancer immunotherapy. Our founding scientists believed that the key to long-term survival lay in learning how to manipulate the immune system to strengthen its defenses against cancer. We set out more than 60 years ago not only to prove this could be done, but also to do something with this knowledge that would truly help cancer patients. This work is now beginning to pay off: immunotherapies are transforming cancer treatment and bringing us closer to cures for all cancers.
