Clinical Accelerator

To realize immunotherapy's full potential for cancer patients, a significant amount of clinical research needs to be completed. The key challenge is to bring the best individual immunotherapies together to create even more powerful combination treatments.

Cancer Research Institute is tackling this problem through a novel nonprofit strategy called the Clinical Accelerator. Born of a collaboration spanning more than a decade between CRI and the nonprofit Ludwig Cancer Research, the idea behind the Clinical Accelerator is simple:

If we can empower top nonprofit cancer researchers around the world to work in closer collaboration with leading biopharma companies, and provide nonprofit resources that help reduce the financial risk of studying new combinations, then more clinical research can be conducted each year, and more effective immunotherapies can be developed more quickly.
