Congratulations to Dr. Allison
Congratulations to our own Jim Allison, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Immunology, who was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine today for his groundbreaking work in immunotherapy.
Dr. Allison’s passion to, as he says, “know how things work,” led to new and effective cancer therapies that free the immune system to attack tumors, a breakthrough called “immune checkpoint blockade.”
Learn more about how this blues-loving scientist from a small South Texas town made discoveries that are saving lives.
Your support helped make Dr. Allison's groundbreaking research and well-deserved Nobel Prize possible. Thank you for helping to change the way the world fights cancer and bringing us closer to our goal of Making Cancer History®.
