Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center


A pioneering research center in immune-based cancer treatments for more than a century

Immunotherapy was born at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) more than a century ago. The center is home to a diverse group of scientists who study the immune system in all its complexity. They are developing groundbreaking immune therapies that are helping to treat several forms of advanced cancer. The Parker Institute members at MSK are dreaming big – pursuing projects that will not only improve existing immunotherapies but also open the door to new ones.
