Jim Allison: Breakthrough

Monday, January 6th at 7:30
$12 Members | $17 Public
With post-film discussion with CSHL President and CEO, Dr. Bruce Stillman

Today, Jim Allison is a name to be reckoned with throughout the scientific world — a 2018 Nobel Prize winner for discovering the immune system’s role in defeating cancer — but for decades he waged a lonely struggle against the skepticism of the medical establishment and the resistance of Big Pharma. (USA, 2019, 90 Mins., PG-13, English | Dir. Bill Haney)
