I am an Immunology researcher and have received funding from the Cancer Research Institute for my laboratory. As a new investigator, the CRI funding allowed me to get my research started quickly and allowed me to get results allowing me to successfully compete for NIH funding for my research focused on immunology, inflammation and autoimmune disease.

I received a grant from the CRI that was instrumental in allowing me to get my laboratory started at Washington University. CRI is a wonderful organization and I will always be grateful for their support at an early and critical stage of my career. I have now been running my lab for 13 years and we focus on how immune cells can become transformed leading to leukemia and lymphoma.

I was a recipient of 3 year postdoctoral fellowship from CRI. I think CRI is playing a crucial role in supporting young scientists to develop their career. It role is very important for our future of science, particularly when public funding is affected by economic crisis and politics.

Since the duration of postdoctoral training is getting longer, if transitional fellowship from postdoc to faculty can be provided by CRI, that would be great.

I received three years fellowship from CRI for my research at the university of Chicago. This fellowship helped us to start a very competitive project . CRI grants help many labs to fund important research works especially when other funding sources are affected due to economic crisis. CRI is doing a great job of providing stable fundings . This allows us to focus on our research. I appreciate CRI's commitment towards science. I am very proud of being a part of CRI community.

I received a 3 year postdoctoral fellowship from the CRI, which was much appreciated. In addition to supporting high-quality science, the CRI brings its members together for an annual conference in New York City. This small, tightly knit meeting is one of the best I have ever attended. The CRI, as a whole, really believes in its mission of using basic science to fight cancer, and you can tell from the passion and the intellect of the people it brings together.

When I began my career in cancer research in 1989, CRI was the only organization that believed in supporting junior researchers as the future of cancer immunotherapy. I had just had my NIH grant turned down and CRI gave me an investigators grant that allowed me to launch my career. They then funded a number of postdoctoral fellows, who are now themselves independent cancer immunology leaders at institutions all over the world. Without CRI, I would not be doing this today. Starting in 2010, cancer immunotherapy has emerged as the "new" breakthrough approach to cancer therapy but this is actually the fruit of decades of labor and CRI has been steadfastly behind that research from the beginning.

I was a recipient of a CRI postdoctoral fellowship at the start of my independent scientific career to study very basic aspects of the immune system. I have always admired the wisdom and courage of the CRI to fund at the same time translational and very basic research in immunology. Furthermore, the quality of the scientific board and the technical staff is, in my opinion, outstanding, assuring that the funds are applied to truly worthy clinical and research programs in a very efficient manner.

The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) supports clinical research in a very productive manner. We received specific support for clinical research and development, which was key to the success of our projects. Investigator-initiated clinical studies are very difficult to finance, yet they represent a central element in modern medical centers. It is very important to move clinical research up the value scale, and the CRI plays a crucial role in this process. State-of-the-art academic studies are increasingly needed to promote bio-medical excellence at University Centers, in partnership with patients and their organizations, and with private enterprises.
