Scholar Description

My full name is Christian Von Emil Cabanlong. My friends call me Chris, but to my family I’m known as my middle name Von. Despite the long name and different ways to address me; I’m a pretty normal guy. I play video games, work out regularly, read books and love bunnies. My curiosity however is a bit abnormal, and I believe that shows when I’m doing anything science related; I tend to fixate on intricate topics for days on end. Recently I’ve been drawn to Immunotherapy because there so many implications. The first that comes to mind is could be an alternative to chemotherapy, thus avoiding some of the detrimental effects of the treatment. The second one is that the amount of surgery done could be lessened. Lastly the cost of the treatments would ultimately be less expensive.
