    Research is concentrated around the pancreas, all the way from clinical
    pancreatology in hereditary and autoimmune pancreatitis, biomarkers,
    endoscopic therapy (ERCP) to function tests and early clinical studies in
    pancreatic cancer with novel therapeutic concepts. The translational and
    basic research is conducted in the lab (PaCaRes), lead by Rainer Heuchel
    [LINK]. The group is also member of the Center for Biosciences [LINK]. In the
    lab, the research concentrates on the connective tissue reaction around
    pancreatic cancer and its role in chemoresistance. We developed o novel 3D
    model consisting of pancreatic cancer cels and stromal cells. The research is
    funded by VR, CF, EU, RaHFo, and others.
