Abstract

Dr. Joan Braganza, a world expert in the field of chronic pancreatitis, proposed a new template for its pathogenesis based on the role of free radical pathology, in particular the heightened but unmitigated oxidative detoxification reactions via cytochromes P450. Dr. Braganza has gone on to show how pancreatic damage in cystic fibrosis, acute pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer fit into the scheme, paving the way for new treatment modalities. In this interview, Dr. Braganza shares her life experience as an investigator and provides a perspective for young researchers entering the field of pancreatology.
