Cancer Research Institute (CRI), founded in 1953 to foster the science of cancer immunology, is the world's leading nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to saving more lives by fueling the discovery and development of powerful immunotherapies for all types of cancer. CRI funds the most innovative clinical and laboratory research around the world, supports the next generation of the field's leaders, and serves as the trusted source of information on immunotherapy for cancer patients and their caregivers. 

The Association for Cancer Immunotherapy (CIMT) is Europe’s largest member-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. CIMT organizes annual meetings, advanced education seminars, symposia, workshops, and publishes white papers, guidelines, and textbooks on cancer immunotherapy.

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.

Founded in 1907, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is the world’s first and largest professional organization dedicated to cancer research, with more than 40,000 members in 120 countries. The mission of the AACR is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, collaboration, funding, and advocacy. 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.
