Personal profile

Research Interests

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an extremely lethal malignancy with dense stromal matrix. The central focus of my research is studying the role and regulation of dense stromal matrix in tumor progression and therapy resistance in PDAC. Overall my research goals are to delineate the molecular basis of PDAC to identify novel approaches for pancreatic cancer treatment.
