Our Labex has been participating in four major activities, namely, (i) scientific research, (ii) drug development, (iii) biomarker discovery, and (iv) clinical implementation/education. For the sake of brevity only the most spectacular realizations will be mentioned. 

A preliminary assessment of the achievement status of our project leads to the following conclusion: 

-       Our Labex has been a major success, spearheading and accompanying the revolution that has transformed oncology into oncoimmunology. This has been possible due to the capacity of the Labex to harmoniously integrate into a vaster local, French and European ecosystem.

-       Our Labex has contributed to high-level science, drug development, biomarker discovery and educational activities by a variety of instruments including an international scientific organization (EATI), a specialized scientific journal and the creation of spin-off start-ups. 

-       For this reason, the scientific evaluation committee had no specific negative comments on our activity back in 2015. Encouraged by the positive comments of the committee, we extended and expanded our strategy from 2015 until now. That said, we are aware of the necessity to adapt our research network to forthcoming technological and conceptual challenges. 

-       In spite of its relative success, the primary goal of the Labex has not been achieved. Although many immunotherapies delay the physical decline and death of a sizeable fraction of oncological patients, very few individuals with cancer experience definitive cure, and the costs of immuno-oncology drugs (and their failure) are prohibitive for society. The fight must go on.
