The funding provided by CRI allowed me to support a wonderfully talented postdoctoral fellow from Africa to embark on an almost entirely unexplored area of research relevant to human infectious diseases, autoimmune disease and cancer. These studies open up an important new area of research specifically related to human immunology. Because of hard work and enthusiasm this fellow has made much additional progress on investigations related to the understanding of a spectrum of virus-associated cancers that occur word-wide, to autoimmune disease and tumor immunology; moreover this young scientist is now well on the way to an independent career. Without the constant support of CRI this would not have been possible.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
allowing my laboratory and my students to conduct research in innovative new areas of human immunobiology.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase their funding to make more of their important and creative work possible.
