David Fullarton Just completed this illustration for an article entitled “Jim Allison’s Long and Winding Road,” for UC Berkeley’s California Magazine. Allison, the subject of both article and illustration, discovered a protein which attaches to T cells and went on to develop a drug to block its action. If the new drug did its job, it would free up the immune system to identify and attack cancerous cells, even those that have resisted chemotherapy.
