Immune to Cancer | Michael Jensen | TEDxStMarksSchool

http://youtu.be/3kiDfLS0UXQ What if the future of cancer treatment lies not with stronger drugs and larger doses of radiation that kill cells indiscriminately, but instead harnesses the power of our immune system to destroy cancer cells in our own body? Dr. Michael Jensen shares details of an FDA approved cancer treatment with a 91% cure-rate. Dr. Michael Jensen is a leader in the field of cancer immunotherapy research. As the founding director of the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research at Seattle Children's Research Institute, Dr. Jensen and his team are pioneering translational research with striking results that just might change the way we think of disease treatment. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
