Ever wonder how checkpoint inhibitors or cancer vaccines work? Don’t know what a CAR T cell is? (Hint: it has nothing to do with automobiles.) Have a friend or family member receiving Herceptin and want to understand how it works? You’ve come to the right place.
The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) has created a series of short, animated videos that explain the basics of the five most common types of immunotherapy in use. Narrated by Jill O’Donnell-Tormey, Ph.D., CRI’s CEO and director of scientific affairs, these educational videos will be of use to anyone who is curious about immunotherapy and wants to learn more. Watch the whole series here.
This video series was generously supported by a charitable grant from Merck, known as MSD outside the U.S. and Canada.
