The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) is the world's only nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to harnessing the immune system's power to conquer all cancers.
This important work has led to a promising new class of cancer treatments called cancer immunotherapy. These treatments mobilize, strengthen, and sustain the immune system's natural ability to destroy cancer cells, wherever they are in the body. Learn more about cancer immunotherapy here.
CRI awards research grants and fellowships to support scientists at leading research universities and clinics around the world. Funding decisions are guided by a Scientific Advisory Council composed of renowned immunologists and tumor immunologists, including three Nobel Prize winners, 27 members of the National Academy of Sciences, and 20 members of the Academy of Cancer Immunology.
To accomplish this, the Cancer Research Institute relies on generous support from individuals, corporations, and foundations who have a desire to become partners in our effort to conquer cancer through immunology. Join with us in advancing the next breakthrough in cancer treatment.
