Event Description

Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most lethal malignancies and is the 4th leading cause of death due to cancer in the United States with a median survival of less than 6 months. The purpose of the 5th NCI Pancreatic Cancer Symposium is to provide an opportunity to bring together the leaders and young investigators including basic researchers and clinical scientists in the field from NCI/NIH and extramural community to exchange information and understand the latest advances in tumor biology, epidemiology, early detection and treatment of pancreatic cancer. The meeting will provide an exciting forum to foster collaborations and to address future challenges in advancing our commitment of improving disease outcome in patients with this recalcitrant cancer.
