General Description

To build upon an earlier discovery made by NETRF-funded research, investigators will explore the role of DAXX genomic mutations in pancreatic NETs. First, researchers will study the normal functions of the DAXX gene in laboratory models, then evaluate what happens when the gene is removed. This knowledge can help to identify therapeutic targets.
