Peter Linsley, PhD, director, Systems Immunology at BRI, is a true trailblazer in the field of immune response regulation. Last December, the Nobel Prize in Physiology of Medicine was awarded to two immunology researchers, James Allison, PhD, and Tasuku Honjo, PhD, for their work related to immune checkpoint inhibitors, which led to the development of cancer immunotherapy. BRI celebrated Dr. Linsley’s contributions to the understanding of the regulation of T cell activation that contributed significantly to the body of knowledge about immune system regulation, that ultimately led Drs. Allison and Honjo to their discovery of new cancer therapy approaches related to immune regulation.
