Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most complex and challenging cancers. The five-year survival rate is only five percent, and the disease is not that rare: more than 30,000 cases will be diagnosed this year. Nabeel and his collaborators throughout DF/HCC are tackling this challenge by sequentially decoding the genetic program that goes awry in pancreatic cancer. This cross-disciplinary, groundbreaking work allows them to understand how the disease develops and progresses with the hope of finding targeted treatments for patients with this difficult disease.
