CHIPSA Hospital Recruits World Class Cancer Scientists!

CHIPSA Hospital Recruits 4 World Class Cancer Scientists! We are happy to announce the inaugural members of our scientific advisory board. Dr. Franco Marincola, Dr. Philip Kim, Dr. Vijay Mahant.

All have joined CHIPSA as members of our Scientific Advisory Board. Renowned immunologist, Dr Thomas Ichim has also joined as an honorary member. All are world-renowned leaders in the field of cancer research, treatment and diagnostics. They have joined forces with CHIPSA to collaborate on early detection and improving treatments. We welcome them to the CHIPSA Team.

Dr. Francesco Marincola - MD

Dr. Marincola is considered one of the worlds leading tumor Immunologists. He was the Chief of the Infectious Disease and Immunogenetics Section in the Department of Transfusion Medicine at the Clinical Center of the National Institute of Health in Bethesda. He was founder and serves as Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Translational Medicine and ASHI Quarterly, senior editor for the Journal of the American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics, and editor for a variety of academic journals, including Immunotherapy, Journal of Immunotherapy, Journal of Immunology, Tumori, Clinical Cancer Research, Biological Therapy, and Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy. He is also a founding member of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer.

Dr. Marincola has done extensive research in tumor immunology by developing strategies for studying tumor-host interactions in the context of human genetic polymorphism and cancer heterogeneity. During his tenure as a Senior Staff Scientist with the NCI Surgery Branch, Dr. Marincola investigated the identification of the algorithm responsible for tumor rejection by immune cells particularly in the context of metastatic melanoma. In particular, the focus of his research is the optimization of strategies to study clinical material during the conduct of clinical trials. The NIH Immunogenetics laboratory is recognized nationally and internationally for the cutting edge technologies applied for the study of genetic materials at the genomic, transcriptional, epigenetic and mutational level.

Dr. Thomas Ichim, PhD. (Honorary Member)

Dr. Ichim has extensive experience with stem cell therapy and cellular product development through FDA regulatory pathways. Dr. Ichim spent over 7 years as the President and Chief Scientific Officer of Medistem, developing and commercializing a novel stem cell, the Endometrial Regenerative Cell, through drug discovery, optimization, preclinical testing, IND filing, and up through Phase II clinical trials with the FDA. Subsequent to the acquisition of Medistem by Intrexon,  Dr. Ichim was brought on to the parent company in its cell engineering unit as Vice President of Cellular Therapy. Thomas Ichim hopes to greatly add to the value of Batu Biologics by leveraging his existing contacts and experience in product development, regulatory filings, and business development. He is the author of 116 papers.

Dr. Ichim is the founder of Batu Biologics, named after his mother who survived 19 years with cancer. He developed his first patent at 19 years old using ozone to treat his mother’s Leukemia. He is the inventor of Vallovax which is also a vaccine that he made for his mother. Dr. Ichim is a genius in his field and his heart is focused on curing cancer.

Dr. Vijay Mahant, MS, PhD.

Dr. Mahant graduated from LUT in the United Kingdom and received his second post-doctorate from MD Anderson in Houston TX.  Dr. Mahant is a scientist with over 30 years of experience in immune and molecular diagnostics.  He has held executive positions and he is founder/co-founder of diagnostic companies with diverse experiences in Research and Development including Auto Genomics, Medi-Lite and Qualigen. He is the inventor of the “New Generation” ultra-sensitive TSH test for prostate cancer. 

Dr. Mahant’s work can be seen all over the world in leading cancer institutions using his cutting edge genetic and diagnostic equipment. He has been on the forefront of the liquid biopsy and circulating tumor cell movement. His passion is to find ways to match tumors with specific drugs that might be off label and to create even better early detection diagnostic tests.

Dr. Phillip S. Kim PhD.

Dr. Kim was awarded the human genetics fellowship by the National Institute of Health (NIH) at the  Cedar Sinai Medical Center. His research focused on the development of gene-therapy model via hematopoietic-stem cell mediated gene transfer and the development of ‘Geno-dynamics’ system to investigate gene function.

At Prometheus he led oncology and gastroenterology research teams to develop technologies, platforms and services for personalized/ targeted diagnostic applications with prognostic, predictive and monitoring utilities for oncology and autoimmune diseases. 

His work included  managing planning & execution of technical projects, clinical trials, science and technology communications, research collaborations & KOL (Key Opinion Leader) relationships, and publications.

He is the inventor of the immune pod which is positioned to address critical unmet need in oncology clinic by activating patient’s autologous immune cells specific for individual’s tumor for effective and safe cellular therapy without complex cellular manipulation. Minimally invasive approach using ‘Immuno-Pod’ maximizes tumor specific immune cell activation by exposing otherwise inaccessible tumor in vivo to contiguous ‘synthetic met’ ex vivo seamlessly integrated for each patient.

Dr. Kim’s valuable insight at CHIPSA will help guide decisions for precision medicine and specific immune response for all patients.

How CHIPSA Goes About Healing Cancer...


Gerson Therapy was developed by Dr. Max Gerson in 1928. The Diet was one of the first natural cancer therapeutics and has been use to treat degenerative disease for more than 80 years. Gerson Therapy consists of an organic, plant-based diet.  It includes fresh pressed organic juices, coffee enemas, and natural supplements. The Gerson Therapy's mission is to restore the body's ability to heal itself. 

After his passing in 1959, Dr. Max Gerson's daughter, Charlotte Gerson wanted to continue her father's work in helping people heal from cancer. She was one of the founding members of CHIPSA Hospital in 1979. Many have attempted the Gerson Therapy and practice over the years, but few have the credentials to declare the positive results. CHIPSA Hospital has been able to maintain remissions in treating malignant cancers and degenerative diseases. 


The medical practice at CHIPSA Hospital has been treating patients through integrative medical protocols since 1979. Over the last several years, CHIPSA has combined the best-known therapies into a potential a leading integrative medical practice. Several of our treatments have achieved long-term results on their own. To our knowledge no other institution has ever combined these individualized protocols together.

Since our inception, we have established the first multidisciplinary integrative medical protocol in North America. It involves the integration of Gerson Therapy along with advanced immune enhancing protocols. A five year melanoma study done at CHIPSA, published in peer reviewed medical journals, yielded over a 600% increase in five year survival for Stage 4 melanoma.


CHIPSA also believes it is very important for patients to focus on their mental health when dealing with cancer. One of the doctors who had been with CHIPSA for 38 years  said,  “I have never seen a patient that is overwhelmingly negative survive their cancer." 

  "Does that mean that just because you’re positive you will live? No."

"But from my experience negative people don’t make it.”, he goes on “I believe that there is an emotional aspect to most cancers. I like to find out what the emotional trauma is and have our team work on that for the patient and let them release it. Many patients claim they have a spiritual enlightenment when they’re at the hospital."

CHIPSA hired 2 full time psychologists to support patients in dealing with past emotional trauma and other fears associated with a cancer diagnosis. We also have weekly meetings for patients and supporters as a part of every patients stay. We use a unique system of Western and Eastern techniques to get to the root cause of trauma.


Next to the treatments at CHIPSA, healing at home is probably the most important  aspect of healing from cancer. It is also the most neglected. CHIPSA understands this and is fully committed to helping patient long term. 

We have developed several aftercare protocols to ensure that patients stay on course.

This includes regularly scheduled doctor calls, online resource centers, and a private Facebook group.

Whenever a question or concern arises, CHIPSA is here for you.


Each of the doctors at CHIPSA take an individualized clinical approach to patient treatment. We take pride into getting to know our patients so we can provide the most customized treatment available. This unique approach to treating cancer has been the cornerstone of our success.

In fact, some of the treatments that we have been using for over 20 years have recently been granted FDA approval with only minor changes to the treatment. 

The reason CHIPSA has been able to be on the forefront of such developments for 38 years is our winning teams eagerness to always be open to new ideas and possibilities.
