Supported by the Susan Cohan Colon Cancer Foundation (“Susie’s Cause”) through a generous contribution of $750,000 from the family of Dr. Bozhong Zhang, Mr. Chen Zhang, and Ms. Li Yuan, the Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins has launched an exciting cutting edge colon cancer vaccine research program. This clinical research program is further testing vaccine-based immunotherapies in combination with DNA hypomethylating agents as new ways to treat colorectal cancer.
