Dr. Sunil Hingorani runs a translational research program dedicated to uncovering mechanisms of pancreas cancer formation and developing new early detection and treatment strategies. In this video, Dr. Hingorani discusses his motivation for researching pancreas cancer as well as some of the challenges pancreas cancer presents. Pancreas cancer has a tendency to spread early in the course of progression. The result is complications that tend to happen more often than in other types of cancer. Optimal treatment for pancreas cancer involves multiple types of therapies and specialties. SCCA brings the patient and all the specialists into one room at the same time to develop a comprehensive care plan. The SCCA is currently developing new kinds of therapies for cancers that are resistant to existing therapies. At the SCCA, we don?t just treat a disease, we treat people.
