Sean Parker donates $250m to create open cancer immunotherapy institute

Silicon Valley billionaire Sean Parker will donate $250 million to launch a new institute aimed at developing more effective cancer treatments.

Sean Parker, for those that don’t know, was a Napster co-founder and also served as Facebook’s first president (Justin Timberlake played him in the film).

Now sitting on an seamlessly endless pile of cash he’s doing something good with it. Yay! Parker’s backed centres will openly share their findings and research with the entire cancer community – making them almost “open source” in a way.

Well done Mr. Parker.
