Annual Summit poster competition

Summit Web Page Header 2009

In September 2016, we invited poster submissions to capture innovations in pancreatic cancer diagnosis, treatment or care, for display at our Inspiring Innovation Summit being held on 15th February 2017 in London.

We are pleased to announce that Dr Pilar Acedo-Nunez and team from UCL have the competition, with the poster entitled, "Photochemical internalisation as a new strategy to enhance the efficacy of pancreatic cancer chemotherapy".

Dr Acedo-Nunez will now talk about the work at our Inspiring Innovation Summit.

Congratulations to our runners up:

  • Neil Bibby, Central Manchester University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, with "Pre-habilitation with Surgical HPB cancer patients"
  • Dr Caroline Cowley, University of Leicester, with "Next Generation Sequencing and Droplet Digital PCR of Somatic Mutations in Cell Free DNA of patients with Pancreatic Cancer".

All submissions were reviewed by an expert panel including members of our Medical Advisory Board and Patient and Carer Advisory Board.
