The genetics of pancreatic cancer progression

Christine A. Iacobuzio-Donahue

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Pancreatic cancer is caused by mutations in specific cancer genes. While these cancer genes are often categorized into those that are inherited versus somatically acquired, they may also be categorized into those that occur during carcinogenesis versus those that accumulate during clonal progression. This newfound approach to understanding pancreatic cancer genetics now opens the door to understanding those events that play a role specifically in progression to metastatic disease.
