Ex Vivo Culture of Pancreatic Tumour Explants

This study aims to establish a new pre-clinical model where intact pancreatic tumour explants are taken from patients and kept viable in the laboratory. In the future, this model will pave the way for personalised therapy for pancreatic cancer which has the potential to significantly improve the quality of life and long-term survival of pancreatic cancer patients.
