The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of mFOLFIRINOX (oxaliplatin, irinotecan, and fluorouracil) and gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel. These chemotherapy drugs will be given before and after surgery. This study will allow the researchers to know if it is a good idea to treat pancreatic cancer with chemotherapy drugs before surgery and if so, to see which of the two drug combinations is better.
