JCCC Leaders in the Field Seminar featuring Dr. Richard Klausner

Promises and challenges of cancer detection: the journey of GRAIL

Presented by
Richard Klausner, M.D.
Founder and Director, Juno Therapeutics
Founder and Director, GRAIL
Executive Chairman, Wisdo

Dr. Richard Klausner has provided valuable mechanistic insights into cellular processes such as intracellular trafficking, translation, and protein assembly. He has also contributed to the understanding of post-translational gene regulation mechanisms through his study of iron metabolism. Furthermore, his investigations into the von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) protein has led to further classification of the protein’s tumor suppressive function in the context of renal cell carcinoma. His discovery of the T Cell Zeta chain and how T cells are activated was the basic science breakthrough that lead to successful cell- based CAR-T cancer therapy.
