Today, thanks to advances in cancer genetics made by the team at Johns Hopkins we now understand that pancreatic cancer is fundamentally a genetic disease- a disease caused by inherited and acquired DNA mutations. Because of this fundamental advance made by Hopkins researchers we can now attack pancreatic cancer on multiple fronts. The research program at Johns Hopkins is broad and deep with over 20 full-time faculty members, and it includes:
Simply put, today we can attack pancreatic cancer in the lab in ways that we could not have imagined ten years ago. This section summarizes some of the ongoing work of the Hopkins team. If you would like to make a donation to support this research, click here.
