This research is focused on the development of a nanoparticle-based delivery system for a chemotherapeutic drug conjugated to a cancer-specific antibody (TAB004) for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. The student will assess efficacy by introducing the nanoparticle to pancreatic cell lines expressing different levels of MUC1, a transmembrane mucin glycoprotein associated with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
