For the pancreatic cancer patients, their family members and the pancreatic cancer advocates it gave them a sense of the genuine excitement that we have now in the research labs. Recent advances in cancer genetics and cancer immunology make this one of the most exciting times to be involved in pancreatic cancer research.
