Earlier this week, on the 1st of October 2018 to be exact, two wonderful people have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology: James Allison and Tasuku Honjo. CONGRATULATIONS!
These two men have more or less invented immunotherapy through their early experiments in the nineties, through which drugs like Keytruda, Opdivo and Yervoy and others are people like me survive cancer. How exciting is that?
This recognition in their lifetimes is the highest achievement any scientist could every hope for.
