Maryland Governor Larry Hogan Helps Vice President Biden Introduce Johns Hopkins Cancer Institute

hoganMaryland Governor Larry Hogan today delivered remarks and helped to publicly introduce the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg/Kimmel Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy at Johns Hopkins medical campus in East Baltimore. He was joined by Vice President Joseph Biden, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Johns Hopkins University President Ronald Daniels, Johns Hopkins Medicine Dean and CEO Dr. Paul Rothman, and many other donors, staff, patients and students.

“Over the course of my own cancer treatment, I met so many amazing fellow patients and families fighting tougher battles than my own,” said Governor Hogan. “It’s because of them that I will continue to stand with all those who are fighting this terrible disease – and that includes proudly supporting Johns Hopkins and the important, life saving work that will be done at the Bloomberg/Kimmel Institute.”

The Bloomberg/Kimmel Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy will further strengthen Johns Hopkins’ program in cancer immunology, uniting more than 100 scientists and clinicians to study immunotherapy – a new approach to cancer treatment. Immunotherapy redirects each patients’ immune system to target and destroy cancer cells, and is one of the most rapidly advancing and promising methods of cancer research today.

In June, 2015, Governor Hogan was diagnosed with stage III non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Since then, he has participated in numerous cancer outreach events, including starting HoganStrong, to raise awareness and resources to help support all those who are fighting cancer. In November, 2015, the governor announced that he was 100% cancer-free and in remission.
