Memorial Sloan Kettering is one of six elite academic institutions to share an unprecedented total of $540 million in financial support from Ludwig Cancer Research, an international community of distinguished scientists pursuing innovative ways to prevent and control cancer. Memorial Sloan Kettering will receive $90 million, which will support immunology research at the Ludwig Center for Cancer Immunotherapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Immunologists Jedd Wolchok and Alexander Rudensky discuss how this extraordinary gift will impact their efforts to explore and develop novel therapies that act by stimulating or strengthening the immune system's inherent ability to fight cancer.
