Comb, President, and CEO of Cell Signaling Technology. For his outstanding achievements in tumor immunotherapy, as a joint discoverer of the PD-1/PD-L1 pathway and the first to use PD-1 antibodies in cancer treatment clinical trials, Professor Lieping Chen of the Yale University Cancer Center was awarded the inaugural award.
