Recruitment of Clinical Investigators
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington
December 05, 2012
Harnessing a patient’s own immune system to attack and defeat cancer may be one of the most promising cancer therapies.
Now a physician-scientist at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is using immune therapies he developed for fighting melanoma to treat solid-tumor cancers, like pancreatic, lung, and colon cancers. Dr. Cassian Yee, M.D., was recruited from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle with the help of a CPRIT Recruitment of Established Investigator Award. Dr. Yee currently is a Professor in the Department of Melanoma Medical Oncology and Department of Immunology Center and Director of the Solid Tumor Cell Therapy Program.
