Research, Clinical and Patient Perspectives - Updates and Breakthroughs

Ever wonder how cutting-edge scientific research leads to cures and pioneering treatments for patients?
You are invited to explore the impact of medical research on the future of human health as we host an exciting, unique speaker series: Insights.

We will take an in-depth look at pancreatic cancer. One of the world’s most challenging cancers, it is projected to become the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States in the next decade. With a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent, cutting-edge scientific research is more important than ever in leading to cures and pioneering treatments for patients.

Join scientists, doctors, patients and survivors for a panel discussion on the latest breakthroughs, followed by a Q&A session. Feel free to submit questions with your registration.
