Immuno-oncology holds promise to transform cancer care

Immuno-oncology uses the body’s own natural defense systems to target and destroy cancer cells.

Cancer researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) believe immuno-oncology will become the fourth standard form of treatment for cancers, along with surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

The Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology harnesses the collective brainpower of researchers from across the OSUCCC – James to enable discovery and breakthroughs to develop immuno-oncology therapies that can reach patients faster.
