STAT News: A cancer researcher races to find a cure — for his own incurable cancer

I hear questions all the time for an update on my personalized “neoantigen” immunotherapy research project – a project I first wrote about in blog format last February.
If you want to know a broader view (both historical background and current status) about our quest to cure both my own MSS-CRC & efforts to lead the way for fellow MSS colorectal cancer patients as well – one of the premier healthcare & research news sites (STAT News) has just published an incredibly well-written feature story on what is now in motion in our San Diego immunotherapy research labs. Preliminary research on my own cancer is a current focus (I’m a lab rat) and then hopefully in the future, expanding to as many additional MSS-CRC patients as possible.
The research is being led by the brilliant immunologist Dr. Stephen Schoenberger at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology in collaboration with the University of California – San Diego (UCSD) Moores Cancer Center and Craig Venter’s company Human Longevity, Inc.

I am very grateful for the opportunities I have been given! A serious goal of mine is to use the science learned from my case to help as many fellow MSS-CRC patients as possible.
Things are starting to get this mad scientist pretty excited 🙂 We’re getting closer and closer to clinical trial stage… Stay tuned… the future is now.
