Project Title: The role of S100PBPR in early pancreatic cancer development

Research Aims: Several roles of the protein S100P in pancreatic cancer were recently reported, but the function of S100PBPR, a novel nuclear protein, still remains completely unknown. The aim of this study is to decipher its role in the pathobiology of pancreatic cancer and assess its validity as a diagnostic and/or prognostic tool.
