1 May 2014

A number of PCRF-funded researchers are being recognised as leaders in the field of pancreatic cancer research by presenting at the London Pancreas Workshop which takes place on Friday 02 May at Barts Cancer Institute in historic Charterhouse Square.

Held every two years, the workshop attracts delegates from both the UK and abroad including clinicians, scientists, and representatives from pharmaceutical companies and pancreatic cancer charities, including PCRF CEO, Maggie Blanks. A wide range of topics related to clinical and scientific issues surrounding pancreatic cancer are discussed and updates are presented on research progress.

Workshop organisers Professor Nick Lemoine and Mr Hemant Kocher have assembled a prestigious presenter line-up including Dr John Marshall talking about new targets for therapy and Professor Tony Magee on targeting the Hedgehog pathway. Other PCRF-funded participants include Dr Steve Pereira who is co-chairing the session on Diagnostics with Nick Lemoine, and two of Professor Caroline Dive’s team from the University Of Manchester are attending as delegates.

With an audience of surgeons, gastroenterologists, radiologists, pathologists, oncologists and scientists, the London Pancreas Workshop is an ideal forum for specialists to discuss and share the latest research into pancreatic cancer.

“That this workshop attracts a wide range of cancer specialists is testament to the international reputation of the PCRF-funded researchers who have organised, or are speaking at, the event,” says Maggie Blanks. “Gathering the wider pancreatic cancer community to discuss and share research discoveries can only be conducive to progress and I’m looking forward to an interesting day.”
