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 $2 million in fellowship awards to deserving young investigators.SITC congratulates the recipients of three 2019 SITC Fellowship Awards
