Inaugural lecture Christian Blank: "Cancer treatment should 'just' be a six-week-long life event"


When he made his very first discovery, immunotherapy – medical oncologist Christian Blank's focus – was still a bit of a dud in cancer research.  Now, more than 20 years later, Blank has been appointed professor by special appointment of Internal Medicine for his clinical research on immunotherapy.

During his oration A cycle of life of T-Cell activation on Friday, October 14, he will elaborate on his life's work: checkpoint inhibitors.
