  • Grant Type: Collaborative
  • Research Type: Basic
  • Primary Tumor Site: Pancreas
  • Area of Inquiry: Models

General Description

Mazur will explore an enzyme (KMT NSD3 or NSD3) in laboratory models of pNETs with genomic alterations in PTEN, MEN1, and ATRX to see if it helps pancreatic NETs. NSD3 may amplify the impact of these alterations, helping to give neuroendocrine cancer cells the “green light” to reproduce and grow.
