Pancreatic cancer is a notoriously treatment-resistant disease. Assistant professor Bryan Q. Spring develops photodynamic light-based therapies that both target the malignant cells and stop the signaling between them that sparks new tumor growth. It’s a novel one-two punch approach to personalized medicine. “With difficult malignancies like pancreatic cancer, you can never kill all the cancer […]
