Harnessing the Immune System

Immunotherapy — one of the most promising advances in modern medicine — uses a patient’s immune system to fight cancer cells. With your support, researchers at MSK are pioneering new immune-based therapies to prevent, treat, and cure cancer.

Together, we’ve made remarkable progress

And you’re advancing an even better tomorrow

Your donations will fund the next wave of discoveries and allow us to answer big questions, like what makes current immunotherapies work for some patients but not others, and how to make them work better for every person with cancer. 

Your contributions propel revolutionary projects

With your support, MSK scientists are leading the way in CAR T cell therapy. In this approach, immune cells from a patient are removed from the body, armed with new proteins that recognize cancer, and given back to the patient.

Donor dollars empower MSK researchers to engineer vaccines that could stop tumors from growing or spreading, destroy cancer cells that live in the body after treatment, and keep cancer from coming back.
