Medicine personalised to you

Just as every person is different, everyone responds differently to treatment for pancreatic cancer. Doctors and patients are unable to make fully informed decisions on the chances of success and the risk of side effects of most treatments as few validated tools exist to predict patient response. We support research to help patients and doctors predict response to and outcome of treatment to enable personalised tailoring of care.
