Dr. Abram Handly-Santana successfully defended his PhD thesis

Abram Handly-Santana was the first graduate student to join the Tuveson lab soon after our arrival at Cold Spring Harbor lab. Abram was part of the Watson School of Biological Sciences program – CSHL’s own graduate school. His work focused on the heterogeneity of the non-cancerous fibroblasts in pancreatic cancer and their role in supporting and restraining the growth of tumor cells. You can find out more about his exciting work in his paper or the recent CSHL press release.
