Pancreatic cancer is cunning. It grows and spreads slowly. When it’s found, fate is often cruel.
With your help, IU can find new ways to detect pancreatic cancer. We can develop new therapies and launch clinical trials to test them. Our researchers are studying how pancreatic cancer grows and resists drugs. They are deploying precision genomics to help oncologists tailor therapies—and then mining the data for insights to help create diagnostic tests, find new drug targets, and see if a treatment works. They also are studying harsh conditions inside the tumor to devise ways to crack the cancer cells, helping existing drugs to do their job.
Gifts give life to bold projects in their earliest stages—when it’s needed most.
