    About This Project

    Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the US, and expected to become the second leading cause of cancer death by 20201. Pancreatic cancer is frequently not diagnosed until it has metastasized resulting in 5-year survival rate of 8%. We will identify novel tumor markers to detect pancreatic cancer at an early stage.
