Using Your Immune System to Fight Cancer (FoxNews)


Dartmouth’s Riley Ennis ’15 and his award-winning research and start-up bio-tech company are featured on a FoxNews “Solution America” episode focusing on bright young scientists and entrepreneurs who are working to solve problems “big and small.”

Ennis has developed a vaccine to help the body use its own immune system to fight cancer cells. He is CEO of his own company, Immudicon, which he founded to get the attention of major bio-technology firms that would make the vaccine available to people as soon as possible.

Ennis tells Fox that Dartmouth has been a great incubator for his ideas and for developing the vaccine. “It starts with making a discovery in the research lab,” Ennis says in the video. “The weapon you do have at college at least is creativity and a fresh perspective.”
