Since its inception, the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) has strongly supported the growth and development of young investigators in the field of cancer immunotherapy. As the field continues to expand, SITC has realized the even greater importance of fostering the next generation of cancer immunotherapy experts and tumor immunologists by providing them with additional funding opportunities.
SITC’s fellowship award program was established through the Forward Fund to support the development of young investigators in the field to cultivate the next generation of cancer immunotherapy experts. Since 2014, SITC has committed more than $1 million in fellowship awards to deserving young investigators.
SITC is proud to offer three new fellowship opportunities in 2017 for students and young investigators to ensure talented, innovative professionals continue to be attracted to the cancer immunotherapy field.
This fellowship award will help to support the development of the next generation of immunotherapy experts who have a vested interest in furthering the clinical research of immunotherapy in lung cancer.

This fellowship award is named after Holbrook Kohrt, MD, PhD, (1977-2016) assistant professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine, renowned for his clinical trials research examining novel immunologic approaches and translational research on novel therapies to enhance antitumor immunity. This award will support the research of a young investigator in the translational cancer immunotherapy space.
