Development of an In Vitro Model for Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a disease notorious for poor therapeutic response and low long-term survival. Despite its high fatality rate, there exists only one first line treatment option, on average extending life expectancy by le... Read More
