James P. Allison Institute
The James P. Allison Institute is dedicated to advancing exceptional discovery, translational and clinical research to integrate immunobiology across disciplines and unlock the full potential of science and medicine for human health. The institute builds upon the legacy of its namesake, James P. Allison, Ph.D., who was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his fundamental discoveries in T cell biology and his invention of ipilimumab, the first immune checkpoint inhibitor to treat cancer.
Meet Dr. James Allison, Dr. Padmanee Sharma and Dr. Raghu Kalluri at the AACR annual meeting on Tuesday, April 12 from 2-3 p.m. at booth 1901.
Education and Training at MD Anderson
MD Anderson academic programs are competitive and comprehensive. We offer educational opportunities from undergraduate degrees to postdoctoral training.
Cancer immunologist: Research at MD Anderson is my calling
From his first encounter as a student in a summer research program to establishing his own lab here, our Dr. Alexandre Reuben shares what sets MD Anderson apart.
Our Therapeutics Discovery team consists of dedicated cancer researchers, doctors, drug developers and scientific experts. We develop small molecule drugs, biologics and cellular therapies without the bottlenecks that hamper traditional drug development.
We're inspired by the needs of our patients and guided by the expertise of MD Anderson clinicians. We don't bring the “bench to bedside” – we start with the bench at the bedside – with each patient and their cancer.
