Philip Philip MD, PhD, professor of oncology at Karmanos Cancer Center, Wayne State University School of Medicine, discusses current research on pancreatic cancer, as well as funding, awareness, and treatment options.

Philip believes this is an exciting time for patients who have pancreatic cancer because oncologists know more about the biology, genetic changes, and mutations of the disease. There is a wide range of drugs available for testing, and most importantly, there is much more public awareness.

More investigators are also committed to research in pancreatic cancer, as well as the treatment of those patients, according to Philip.
