There's a point where science fiction becomes science. When it comes to vaccines against cancer that time may have finally arrived. Evidence now exists that the body's immune system can recognize and destroy cancer cells. The goal of cancer immunology - and the Cancer Research Institute - is to harness this natural capacity for the control of cancer. Vaccines are just one area of research supported by the CRI. Since 1953, the Institute has undertaken a wide range of laboratory science programs and patient-oriented clinical investigation.
