“I am grateful to the NPF for the support they provided me. A research grant from the NPF helped fund continued research on early detection strategies and the development of an innovative circulating tumor cell (CTC) based approach to personalized therapy for pancreatic cancer. Thanks to the NPF, each of these projects have garnered NIH funding and we are hopeful will lead to improved outcomes for our patients. The NPF is an invaluable source of funding for early stage projects.”
