Our research

Detect Early. Treat better. Save lives.

Pancreatic cancer is the deadliest common cancer. More than half of people with pancreatic cancer don’t survive beyond three months from diagnosis. So we must do more.

Decades of underfunding mean that we still lack the tests and treatments to tackle this brutal disease. Hope alone can’t fix this. People with pancreatic cancer need action now.

That’s why our research strategy is vitally important. It aims to transform the future for people with pancreatic cancer. From cutting-edge tests to cancer-killing therapies, our scientists are striving for earlier detection and better treatment.

We’re also investing in the brightest minds, to grow the research community and accelerate the life-saving breakthroughs that we so urgently need.

Early detection

Late diagnosis is one of the biggest issues in pancreatic cancer but we’re investing in ground-breaking research to change this.
