The award — granted to just 5% of NIH-funded investigators —ensures that Kurt Schalper’s research will be funded for the next seven years. It supports his groundbreaking work identifying novel pathways for cancer immunotherapy which can be used to optimally select and treat patients with non-small cell lung cancer.

The methods and equipment used to probe cellular questions are rapidly advancing—including, at Yale, through the addition in 2014 of CyTOF, or Cytometry Time-Of-Flight, and this past June of the CyTOF Imaging Mass Cytometer (IMC), which greatly expands Yale's ability to examine specimens that are analyzed both for clinical diagnosis and for basic research.

A Yale-led team of researchers has developed a new assay, or investigative tool, to measure the anti-tumor immune activity in non-small cell lung cancer tumors that could lead to a more accurate determination of which patients will respond to immune therapy drugs. Findings from the study were published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
