Annually, we honor outstanding individuals whose contributions to cancer research—through scientific discovery or corporate and philanthropic leadership—have significantly advanced our mission to conquer cancer through immunotherapy.
This year we celebrate the Cancer Research Institute's 65th birthday with the scientific and industry leaders who share CRI’s vision of a future immune to cancer. On Thursday, October 25, 2018, the Cancer Research Institute will bestow its highest honors on Perri Peltz, George D. Yancopoulos, M.D., Ph.D., Miriam Merad, M.D., PH.D., Padmanee Sharma, M.D., Ph.D, and Boris Reizis, Ph.D., who, like CRI, are dedicated to fueling the development of immunotherapies for all forms of cancer.
