For the majority of patients with pancreas cancer, the high metastatic proclivity is life limiting. Some patients, however, present with and succumb to locally destructive disease. A molecular understanding of these distinct disease manifestations can critically inform patient management. Using genetically engineered mouse models, we show that heterozygous(More)
The complex morphology of axons presents a challenge in understanding axonal responses to injury and disease. By in vivo two-photon imaging of spinal dorsal column sensory axons, we systematically examined the effect of injury location relative to the main bifurcation point on axon degeneration and regeneration following highly localized laser injuries.(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. The introduction of a number of small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors has revolutionized the management of metastatic disease. Surgery is the mainstay of management for localized disease. Patients with high risk tumors are treated with adjuvant(More)
