Through its Impact Grants, the Cancer Research Institute funds projects that aim to advance defined scientific and technological goals. These awards stem from ongoing collaborations with individual donors and nonprofit organizations, and aim to address major challenges that would otherwise limit progress in cancer immunotherapy research and drug development. 

The Immunotherapy Promise

The Immunotherapy Promise, a collaboration between the Cancer Research Institute (CRI)and Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF), will provide funding for qualified scientists at leading universities and research centers throughout Israel with the goal of advancing our understanding of cancer immunotherapy and developing life-extending therapies, novel diagnostic approaches, and/or prevention strategies.
