The Cancer Pharmacology Lab was under the spotlight at the Annual Meeting of the European Pancreatic Club, in Toledo, Spain, 24-26 June 2015
The abstract “Galectin-4 (Gal-4) expression is associated with reduced lymph node metastasis, and the modulation of its downstream pathway Wnt/beta-catenin inhibits invasive behavior of pancreatic cancer (PDAC) cells” was selected as an oral presentation, and presented by Dr. Niccola Funel in the session “Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma”
During the Gala Dinner, the EPC acknowledged the work of Dr. Giovannetti as an elected Abstract Selection Committee member in the period 2012-2015, giving her the EPC medallion.
