    "We have developed a highly promising nanomedicine that could improve treatment for pancreatic cancer – the most chemotherapy resistant and deadly cancer in Australia... This proposal will use state-of-the-art nanoparticles to deliver gene-silencing drugs to inhibit the expression of a gene which promotes tumour growth and metastases in pancreatic cancer cells."
