Sean Parker is on a mission to solve cancer

Sean Parker, investor, co-founder of Napster and Spotify and former Facebook president announced he would be pledging a good chunk of his own wealth — $250 million — to eradicating the world of cancer this April. Called the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, the institute is made up of more than 300 scientists, 40 labs and top researchers in cancer immunotherapy from UCSF, UCLA, the University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, MD Anderson, and Memorial Sloan Kettering.

“We are at the bleeding edge of what’s possible with synthetic biology and immunology and genomics in terms of actually translating those discoveries into therapies that can treat and cure patients,” Parker told TechCrunch.
