How has being a Goldblatt Scholar supported your career in cancer biology?

The Goldblatt family has been instrumental in enabling me to take timr from my medical studies in Isreal and come to the US to pursue the highest quality trailing as a cancer biologist. Through their support, and Professor Thomas Gajewski's close mentorship, I have been introduced to the amazing potential of cancer immunotherapy to elicit profound cancer remission in patients. This has become my scientific and medical passion and I will be pursuing a career in tumor immunology research as an MD, PhD.

What are your career goals?
