      I’m working on Pancreatic Cancer, which is really a bad one, because it gives you symptoms when it’s already too big to operate it. Fortunately it’s not the most common cancer (I think the 11th), but despite this, it’s the 4th most common cause of cancer-related death. The very bad thing is that the situation for pancreatic cancer hasn’t almost changed in the last 40 years, that why I really hope that my work can contribute to find a treatment for this cancer.
