2020 Progress Report

The Perry S. Levy Endowed Fellowship provides powerful support for the
Institute’s most promising young investigators, allowing them to pursue research with field-altering potential while receiving valuable mentorship from established physician-scientists.

This year’s update highlights the research of the 2019-2020 Levy Fellow, Kelly Burke, MD, PhD, who studies how immunotherapies — drugs that harness the immune system to fight cancer — help the body recognize and attack tumors. She is also exploring ways to minimize the side effects of these drugs so more patients can benefit from immunotherapy.

Thank you for your generous partnership in this important work.
