  • Dr. Dabagh has been selected for the NSF CAREER Award!

This project is developing virtual tumor tissues to address the shortcomings of in-vitro models and reduce the reliance on animal models by replicating human tissue. These virtual tissues are applied to enhance the understanding of tumor malignancy and mechanisms involved that increase the accuracy of early diagnosis and treatment decision-making for the most prevalent type of pancreatic tumor, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC).
