The goal of Dr. Edderkaoui's research is to understand the mechanism of pancreatic cancer development, especially the interaction between cells in the tumor microenvironment, and develop treatment strategies based on the knowledge gained from animal models of the disease developed in our Lab.

Current investigations include:

We are currently working on studying the interaction between pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia cells and cancer cells with macrophages in the tumor microenvironment and how this interaction promotes a phenotype change of these cells.
