Creating a Future Immune to

Immunotherapy is the most promising cancer treatment of our time.
With your support, we can fund more breakthrough research
and more cures for cancers of all kinds.

We are the Cancer Research Institute

Since 1953, we've led the field with support for immunotherapy research and clinical trials. Together with our donor, patient, and scientist communities, we continue to fund revolutionary breakthroughs to cure all types of cancer.

Why Cancer Immunotherapy?

By harnessing the innate powers of the body's immune system, immunotherapy treatments have the potential to achieve complete, long-lasting remissions and cures for all types of cancer. Immunotherapy is already saving lives, and while responses vary from patient to patient, with further research, we can bring more effective treatments to more cancer patients.
