Yale Cancer Center has launched the Yale Center for Immuno-Oncology. The new center will build on YCC’s international leadership in immunobiology, cancer immunology, and development of novel cancer immunotherapies. It is a partnership between YCC and the department of Immunobiology at Yale University.

“This new center gives us the chance to work more collaboratively and efficiently with our world-renowned scientists and faculty to address scientific questions in Immuno-Oncology,” said Roy S. Herbst, MD, PhD, chief of Medical Oncology at YCC, and interim director of YCIO. “We hope we can transform the way we treat people affected by cancer by generating research advances more quickly in this groundbreaking field.”
