• For a World Immune to Cancer

    We established immunotherapy as the fourth pillar in treating cancer for one reason only – to save more lives.

  • Inventing the Next Wave in Immunotherapy

    Breakthrough science has given researchers, clinicians, and patients new hope in the fight against cancer. With recent discoveries in immunotherapy treatments and an increased understanding of the immune system’s role in fighting disease, we are closer than ever before to transforming all cancers into curable diseases.

    The Best Minds

    Supporting and training scientists today for breakthrough discoveries in immunotherapy. We fund both open-ended laboratory research and data-driven clinical studies and turn discoveries into real-world results that save lives.

    Promoting the Power of Our Immune System

    CRI funds scientists from around the world to advance new avenues of discovery, new technologies, and new ways to analyze and share data about our immune system and its power to outsmart cancer — with the shared goal of making immunotherapy a lifesaving treatment for all cancers.

    The IO Research Intelligence Center

    As the science of cancer immunotherapy advances and the amount of data generated in clinical and laboratory studies grows exponentially, CRI is harnessing this information and putting it into the hands of our global community of research scientists to help speed the discovery and development of cancer cures.

    Data on its own is not enough. We need to make sense of data within what we already know about cancer immunology. We need to marry data science, bioinformatics, and cancer immunology if we are going to take the next big leap of developing immunotherapies that are effective for all cancers.
