June 26, 2015

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.
