Sanford-Burnham’s NCI-designated Cancer Center and the Cancer Center’s Community Advisory Board will host the third annual Cancer Center open house for cancer survivors, their families and friends, and research advocates on June 11 at 4:30 p.m. in La Jolla, Calif. The open house, titled “The Science Behind Immunotherapy,” will focus on revealing the latest discoveries and breakthroughs from our cancer center's laboratories on harnessing the body's own immune system to treat cancer.
The evening will also feature guided lab tours and an informal reception, featuring healthy snacks and refreshing beverages. Guests are invited to speak directly with cancer scientists, as well as join one, or all of the guided tours offered. Tours will include:
