Driving forward research in the UK

Pancreatic cancer research has been neglected for too long – but we’re changing this and driving forward research in the UK.  

We know that pancreatic cancer is tough – tough to research, diagnose, treat and survive. And that’s exactly why we’re taking it on. 

Research in to pancreatic cancer does not get the focus it needs. It has not been prioritised by governments, funders and researchers for many decades resulting in inadequate investment 

As well as investing in early diagnosis, treatment and care, innovation and building capacity, we’re highlighting the unmet needs of people with pancreatic cancer among some of the UK’s largest medical research organisations. We also challenge dated approaches and attitudes and collaborate to ensure what is done in the field is coordinated and effective.
