Cancer Vaccine Consortium and Cancer Vaccine Collaborative unite under the Cancer Research Institute
Date:1/28/2008

New York, New York The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) announced today that it has brought together the Cancer Vaccine Consortium, a program of the Sabin Vaccine Institute, and the Cancer Vaccine Collaborative, a program of the Cancer Research Institute (CRI) and the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR), to form the leading initiative on cancer vaccines. This joint effort establishes a unified voice in the cancer vaccine field and provides a major new resource to academia, industry, and governmental agencies involved in cancer vaccine discovery and development.

The Cancer Vaccine Consortium, now administered by the Cancer Research Institute, is an international association of 67 pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic institutions engaged in cancer vaccine and immunotherapy research and development. The Cancer Vaccine Collaborative is a coordinated global network of 22 academic clinical and laboratory centers with strong immune monitoring capabilities and the capacity to conduct early-phase clinical trials.

Linking these programs under a single organization offers great synergism for academic and industrial collaboration and provides improved capabilities for all its members. Together, the two programs aim to address the needs of the immunotherapy community with the goal to accelerate discovery and development, and facilitate regulatory discussions about cancer vaccines and other immunotherapies.

The objectives and activities of the new Cancer Vaccine Consortium will encompass:

  • Hosting scientific conferences and workshops on cancer vaccines and other immunotherapies to facilitate knowledge exchange;
  • Forming alliances with academic and industrial organizations across the globe to further accelerate progress;
  • Facilitating ongoing dialogue with regulatory bodies to help develop needed standards for evaluating cancer immunotherapies;
  • Developing and standardizing methodologies for measuring the
