I applaud the Cancer Research Institute's support of young scientists and of research that is somewhat risky, but with potentially great rewards. This forward thinking helps to develop a new generation of scientists that are creative -- which allows for many more possibilities to be realized.

Two years ago, we came up with a hypothesis relating to how immunotolerance is induced and maintained upon tumor development. With the help of financial support from the CRI, we have been able to throw more light on this pathway and our findings have the potential to translate into the development of novel immunotherapy approaches for the treatment of cancer. Thank you CRI

Make greater effort to broaden the CRI campaign-to reach more people and let them know about the work of CRI and how they can help achieve this fantastic goal of curing cancer through basic research

As a recipient of funding from the Cancer Research Institute, I give it high marks for having the courage to fund the risky innovative science that NIH doesn't prioritize. Discoveries made by Cancer Research Institute scientists have made direct impacts on cancer therapy and is highly respected in the field.

The Cancer Research Institute represents a focused lean organization that is committed to seeing the important work done. They impact people's lives by helping to develop and deliver information, therapies and hope to patients with cancer. Their fund raising and success is largely a function of a very committed and dedicated staff that works in concert and has reduced the typical bureaucracy to a minimum. They provide promise of cures not in the far off distant future but more in the lifetimes of the patients that are dependent upon progress in the area of cancer treatments. In the past two years the financial crisis has made their work much more difficult but they have risen to the challenge.

I was fortunate to receive a CRI Career Award when I was just starting my lab at the University of Washington. This funding provided me the latitude to pursue ideas that were too risky to compete for NIH funding. This permitted me to develop a line of investigation that continues to prove fruitful and important.

I received a CRI postdoctoral award ~ 8 years ago which has ultimately helped me and the lab I was working in to make a major discovery in lymphocyte biology. It has also allowed me to become an independent investigator by sustaining my high-risk/high-reward project as a project. This paid off and it is critical that organizations like the CRI support basic immunology research, especially at a time when federal funding is limited and often not available for novel, unproven approaches. Of all organization that fund research in the field of cancer and lymphoma research, the CRI stands out because of its willingness to fund basic immunology research, its exceptional scientific advisory board and its vision to fund promising talent and unconventional approaches.

The Cancer Research Institute has been the fundamental body that has globally underpinned the whole discipline of cancer immunology. In Australia we have benefited from their graduate teaching program. It has funded a whole generation of Australia's next research leaders in cancer immunology.

My association with CRI began about five years ago, when the first of three postdoctoral fellows supported by CRI began work in my lab. I have also attended a number of CRI sponsored scientific meetings. This made a great difference to my work and to overall progress in the field.

Only if our scientists can understand how the basic mechanisms of our immune system and the cell work, can we ever hope to find a cure for this disease.
The Cancer Research Institute is a non-profit organization, that has devoted itself to find a cure for cancer.
They support basic research
to elucidate the mechanisms involved in cancerogenesis as well as research that is aimed at finding out how our immune system and the processes in the cell work.
