Department of Surgery is proud to announce the Division of Immunotherapy, which is leading the way to improve our understanding of the role of immunotherapy in the treatment of cancer and other diseases. Immunotherapy is designed to boost a patient's own immune system to attack cancer and other diseases. Our team of researchers is engaged in pioneering research designed to trigger our bodies' own immune system to fight disease.

Owen Frederick McMasters

Owen McMasters died of leukemia February 15, 2016 knowing the science that could have cured him of his cancer was right at our doorstep. Owen's Wish was that no other children (or adults) would have to endure the ravages of cancer and its treatment without a meaningful chance to be cured.

The Owen's Wish Fund is dedicated to advancing the field of cancer immunotherapy and providing state-of-the-art immunotherapy care for patients in our region. Please join our effort to help make Owen's Wish come true.
