This Fellowship has provided financial security that has allowed me to focus on developing novel and innovative immunotherapies… Without this funding, such advancements would either not occur or be incremental, and so I am very grateful for the opportunity that this fellowship has provided, to not only further my career but allow me the opportunity to potentially have a lasting impact in the world.
