William Bradley Coley
(January 12, 1862 – April 16, 1936) was an American bone surgeon and cancer
researcher best known for his early contributions to the study of cancer immunotherapy
, specifically causing infection as a way to fight cancer, a practice used as far back as 1550 BC. His work was not proven effective in his lifetime, and today Coley's toxins
are known to be both ineffective and potentially harmful. Coley is nevertheless recognized as the ''Father of Cancer Immunotherapy'' for his contributions to the science.
