Discussing Cancer Immunotherapy
I joined Nobel laureate Jim Allison to take part in a roundtable discussion of cancer immunotherapy with several Members of Congress. The informal discussion took place in the Rayburn Office Building, Washington, D.C., on September 11, 2019. The meeting was requested by Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and ACT for NIH, Washington, D.C. Afterwards, we posed for a group photo, showing (from left to right) Jed Manocherian, founder and chairman, ACT for NIH; Congressman Fred Upton of Michigan; Congresswoman DeLauro; Congresswoman Nita Lowey of New York; Jim Allison, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, and a pioneer in cancer immunotherapy. Standing next to me on the right is Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher of Texas. Credit: NIH
