Cancer Immunology Research

In 2001, the Cancer Research Institute (CRI), along with the Academy of Cancer Immunology, launched an important new journal, Cancer Immunity. Led by inaugural Editor-in-Chief Dr. Lloyd J. Old, a world-renowned cancer immunologist, the journal was, at the time, the only journal devoted to all aspects of cancer immunology. Since the journal’s launch, it had disseminated many types of influential content important to cancer immunologists, including original research articles, reviews, hypotheses, case reports, and conference proceedings.

However, effective July 2013, Cancer Immunity published its final issue and merged with Cancer Immunology Research, a new journal published by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).

This new collaboration between CRI and AACR, which will preserve the legacy of Dr. Old’s vision and the journal he founded, will focus on publishing research articles reporting major advances in all areas of cancer immunology. Dr. James Allison, editor-in-chief of Cancer Immunity, will serve Cancer Immunology Research as a deputy editor. A portion of the journal will be devoted to CRI-related events and activities, and our partnership will be highlighted on the journal’s cover.

In addition, Cancer Immunity content will be relocated to the Cancer Immunology Research online journal site by the end of 2013. This will allow readers additional access to preeminent cancer immunology content in one location. In the meantime, you can still visit our archives and valuable scientific resources, such as the Peptide Database, SEREX Review, LICR Tetramer Collection, and much more on
