4th NCI-Pancreatic Cancer Symposium

Pancreatic Cancer Symposium flyer

Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most lethal malignancies, and is expected to be the second leading cause of death due to cancer by 2020 in the United States. Recent progress in the basic and translational research has identified molecular subgroups, critical pathways associated with disease aggressiveness and novel molecular targets that could be harnessed in improving survival in patients with pancreatic cancer. This symposium presents recent advances in our understanding of the development, progression, early detection and treatment of pancreatic cancer, and would provide an exciting forum to discuss the current advances and challenges in improving diagnosis, prevention and treatment of this lethal malignancy.  Learn more…
