2021 AACR Virtual Conference: Pancreatic Cancer – Litsa Protopapa

PCRF is keen to support PhD students and early career researchers who’ve chosen to study pancreatic cancer and who are involved in research projects that we’ve funded. This includes enabling them to access events that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend so that they can meet, network with, learn from - and be inspired by - more established researchers in the field.
