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)
After the film and discussion...
Meet the Author: Jim Allison is featured in the book A Cure Within: Scientists Unleashing the Immune System to Kill Cancer, a collection of profiles of the pioneers who forged the field of immunotherapy. Copies will be available for purchase after the film, with author Neil Canavan on hand to sign and discus the book.
