Laura Bannister, Michelle Bugden, Dmitry Klokov, Tanner Stein and Yi Wang for their work towards an improved cancer treatment by combining low doses of radiation with immune checkpoint therapy (ICT). This novel type of therapy, despite holding great potential for cancer treatment, still suffers from low success rates. The CNL team was able to demonstrate that low doses of radiation, coupled with ICT, provides improved therapeutic outcomes and results in increased eradication of cancerous tumours. This work represents great progress in the fight against cancer..
