Review for Cancer Research Institute, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2008, the Cancer Research Institute was the only agency that was

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.
