Research Interests

Dr. Hingorani’s research success is well-documented. He helped develop the first mouse models to accurately mimic human pancreas cancer from its precancerous inception to its advanced stages. Dr. Hingorani has used these models to identify genetic events, signaling pathways, and collaborating cell types that contribute to the aggressiveness of ductal adenocarcinoma, the most common and deadly form of pancreas cancer. Dr. Hingorani has made multiple breakthroughs in his lab that have informed the course of his latest phase of research, as well as that of others, and his lab is testing these ideas in a novel Murine Clinical Trials Program to identify those strategies most likely to succeed in patients.
