Dear Colleague: 

We want to draw your attention to an invitation you should have already received from the Coalition for the Life Sciences (CLS). On Wednesday, September 11th at noon,
CLS cordially invites you to attend a briefing entitled The Future of Cancer Immunotherapy
in the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2043. 

We invite you to join the Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus as they welcome the distinguished,
Dr. James Allison, Nobel Prize Winner in Physiology or Medicine, from the University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Dr. Allison won the Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking research on the human immune system’s ability to attack cancer tumors. Dr. Allison was able to untangle the complexities of why human immune systems cannot fight cancerous tumors. The significance
of his research has led to life-saving treatments for people who would otherwise have little help. 

We hope you will join us for this exciting presentation and discussion. Please RSVP to Lynn Marquis at

The Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus provides a forum where Members and staff can interact directly with preeminent researchers responsible for important scientific discoveries. Many of the stunning advances, made possible by NIH funding, highlighted
in these presentations have led to improved understanding of the cause, treatment, and prevention of human disease.

If you would like to join the Biomedical Research Caucus, please contact Mia Mazer ( in Congresswoman Speier’s office or Drew Hatter (
in Congressman Stivers’ office.
