  • South Dakota State University Assistant Professor Joshua Reineke and his research team developed a 3D pancreatic cancer model in which the tumor surrounds itself with the fibrous tissue that is difficult for chemotherapy drugs to penetrate. This new model will help researchers find new drugs and delivery methods to treat pancreatic cancer.

  • Postdoctoral research associate Mikhail Durymanov discusses the fluorescent images of the 3D pancreatic tumor model with research scientist Liping Gu. Imaging confirmed that the spheroid tumors grown developed fibrous tissue.

  • Patients undergoing surgery for pancreatic cancer at Avera McKennan Hospital made a critical contribution to the development of a new pancreatic cancer model by donating tumor tissue. Dr. Michael Person, right, is a surgeon at Avera McKennan who performs a high-volume of these procedures each year.

  • Through collaboration with Avera Health pathologist Dr. Raed A Sulaiman, South Dakota State University researchers are able to compare the protein makeup of the scar-like tissue in their pancreatic cancer model with those of the Avera patients’ tumor tissue.
