Science + Engineering... Conquering Cancer Together

Happy Birthday to Us

This spring marked the fifth anniversary of the Koch Institute's move into Building 76 and of bringing together scientists and engineers under one roof, with one mission. The season was filled with celebrations of this momentous occasion. Our Public Galleries welcomed a new set of images, beautifully illustrating the power of convergence. We created an anniversary video celebrating the KI’s accomplishments and looking toward the possibilities of the future. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we awarded a number of postdoctoral Quinquennial Cancer Research Fellowships. Continuing on our theme of ‘fives,’ our SOLUTIONS with/in/sight masterclasses this year have focused on each of our five research focus areas. A two-day Immune Engineering Symposium dove deeply into the promise of the marriage of immunotherapy and engineering, and 'Mission: Possible' (see below) gave us two more reasons to celebrate.
