Fighting Cancer by Sharing Knowledge

aka ACIR (Accelerating Cancer Immunotherapy Research)   |   Concord, MA   |  https://acir.org/

Mission

ACIR's mission is to fast-track cancer immunotherapy research by providing a free weekly digest of the key advances in Cancer Immunobiology, Experimental Immunotherapy, and Innovative Methods. Our scientists scour PubMed and curate the key publications we believe all researchers should be aware of. We hope that by making it easier to stay up to date, our summary will enhance the productivity and creativity of many, bringing us closer to a cure. We strive to provide meaningful and unbiased content, and to not favor any approach, product or research team.
