Cancer Research Institute, Inc.
June 23, 2011

In 2008, the Cancer Research Institute was the only agency that was
willing to fund a risky project whose objective it is to understand
why the immune system fails in the elderly. Since then, this study has
yielded exciting results on how aging of stem cells influences immune
function and we are currently preparing two manuscripts on our work.
We have recently procured a grant by the National Institute on Aging,
totaling $658,000, to follow up on these results. Obviously, we would
not have been able to undertake this project without the visionary
support of the Cancer Research Institute.
