The April 3, 2015, issue of the prestigious journal Science is devoted to “realizing the promise” of cancer immunology and immunotherapy.

Two additional research articles also discuss results of an anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor in non-small cell lung cancer, co-authored by several CRI scientists, including our clinical director Jedd Wolchok of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and lung cancer page reviewer Naiyer Rizvi of Columbia University Medical Center, and advances in natural killer (NK) cell biology written by Weiwen Deng, a CRI postdoctoral fellow, and David Raulet, a CRI investigator award recipient, of UC-Berkeley.
Science is one of the world’s most respected scientific journals. In December 2013, the journal voted Cancer Immunotherapy the “Breakthrough of the Year.”
