Main Task:

Our contribution consists in using our established 2D and 3D culture models from pancreatic cancer patient-derived xenografts (PC-PDXs) for the study of the developed nanosystems, specifically, the internalization of nanoemulsions as well as their ability to deliver the photosensitizer.
