Rosenberg, M.D., Ph.D., chief of surgery at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD, and professor of surgery at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences and George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Washington, DC, for their pioneering work to bring adoptive T cell therapy from its experimental foundations in the laboratory, through proof of concept, to its successful application in the clinic as a treatment for cancer. CRI bestows this annual award, considered the Nobel Prize in tumor immunology, upon one or more scientists whose discoveries in the fields of immunology or tumor immunology significantly contribute to the advancement of immune system-based therapies for cancer.  Drs.
