In collaboration with Dr. Gravekamp (Albert Einstein College of Medicine), ACF supports preclinical research in pancreatic cancer investigating combination therapies that might enhance the efficacy of the standard of care chemotherapy (gemcitabine) and of immunotherapies, currently widely under investigation. We are specifically interested in the potential of drug repurposing in this context and include drugs that might act directly on the tumor cells as well as those that would modulate the stroma. The study makes use of state-of-the-art experimental mouse models that recapitulate primary tumor growth and development of metastasis.
