Cancer researcher describes breakthrough
San Diego Union-Tribune

Dr. Carl June, a pioneer in a new cancer therapy that alters a patient’s own immune system to defeat the disease, brought his story to an audience of about 500 in La Jolla Wednesday evening. And he asked them to become partners in fighting cancer.

With federal funds for cancer research becoming harder to get, private charity will be increasingly important in getting the therapy to patients, said June, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine.
