Lecture Series
Modelling and Targeting Pancreatic Cancer

In this lecture program we will present the state of the art knowledge of pancreatic cancer research. Top representatives of the respective research fields will give an overview of implications of their field of research with respect to pancreatic cancer pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment.

Module I and Module II take place alternately in the winter semester.

The lecture series is part of the MD/PhD program "Medical life science and technology" of the TUM Graduate School(link is external).

Anyone who is interested is very welcome! There is no registration required.
