The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) is the world's leading nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to harnessing the immune system's power to conquer all cancers. CRI awards research grants and fellowships to support scientists at leading research universities and clinics around the world. Funding decisions are guided by a Scientific Advisory Council composed of renowned immunologists and tumor immunologists, including Nobel Prize winners, members of the National Academy of Sciences, and members of the Academy of Cancer Immunology. 


The Association for Cancer Immunotherapy (CIMT) is a members-based information and education platform that facilitates the knowledge exchange between academic and industry scientists, physicians and regulatory authorities who research and develop cancer immunotherapies. CIMT was founded in 2002 by physicians and researchers from different fields of clinical and theoretical medicine as an independent non-profit organization.


Since 2011 the principal objective of the European Academy of Tumor Immunology (EATI) is to promote tumor immunology at the scientific and clinical levels. EATI promotes all areas of tumor immunology, considered as a continuum between fundamental, translational and clinical research, as well as the practical implementation of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in routine clinical practice. EATI strives for excellence, independence, leadership, diversity and flexibility. Throughout its work, EATI provides independent, authoritative and evidence-based advice to underpin policy for stimulating the implementation of concepts, methods and procedures inspired by tumor immunology.


The American Association for Cancer Research is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focused on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research. Its reputation for scientific breadth and excellence attract the premier researchers in the field. The programs and services of the AACR foster the exchange of knowledge and new ideas among scientists dedicated to cancer research, provide training opportunities for the next generation of cancer researchers, and increase public understanding of cancer.

The mission of the AACR is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters research in cancer and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.
