Optical imaging highlights metabolic interactions that make pancreatic tumor cells grow

Representative NAD(P)H fluorescence intensity images of pancreatic cancer cells cultured as 3D organoids (shown in magenta) and PSC non-cancer cells (shown in cyan) from cocultures obtained on days 1 through 4 (top). The corresponding optical redox ratio from the same images is also shown (bottom). Credit: Morgridge Institute for Research Pancreatic cancer is a rare,…
