I am pleased to share the following publication featured in the prestigious journal “Nature, April 16, 2016”. George Miller, MD, one of our Seed Grant Awardee’s in the 2015-16 cycle, completed the project in record time. It is very exciting to receive results of our funded work so rapidly – a momentum that promises to unravel the complexity of pancreatic cancer.
This study shows the importance of examining cancer from within the actual context in which it grows, mainly due to the immune response of the cells surrounding the tumor. New novel targets for potential anti-cancer drug development are made possible with the findings of this work.
We are grateful to the Hirshberg Scientific Advisory Board for their steadfast support of young investigators and we thank you for your donations which are vital to understanding the biology of pancreatic cancer.
And Dr. Miller himself asked me to tell you directly, “Thank you for your support!!!!!!”
