The Pancreas Cancer Seminar Series meeting (PCSS) is a bi-weekly series where a multi-disciplinary group meets to exchange ideas and research about pancreatic cancer. Invited speakers come both from within the core group of pancreatic cancer researchers, as well as those that might contribute meaningfully to the ongoing team science efforts in pancreatic cancer on campus.

Date: 2/23/18, 9:30am to 10:30am
Time: 2/23/18, 9:30am to 10:30am
Location: Pickens Tower FCT3.5001

Speaker Bio: The Giancotti Laboratory at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Our laboratory studies the molecular basis of tumor initiation and progression to metastasis with emphasis on the role of adhesion signaling in these processes. Our research program spans several cancer types - including breast, prostate and pancreatic cancer - and multiple target organs, and it aims to not only shed light on the biology of metastasis but also to bring to the clinic an entire new class of therapeutics.
