Pancreatic Cancer Symposium 2017

Milwaukee, WI US
January 27, 2017

By the year 2020, pancreatic cancer is projected to be the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. The incidence of pancreatic cancer in Wisconsin is among the highest in the country.

This year, our symposium has been structured to provide a comprehensive overview of the management of patients with pancreatic cancer for clinicians with all levels. Our morning session will focus on the diagnostic workup and staging for newly diagnosed patients and outline stage-specific treatment principles. In our mid-morning session, we will review of the recent proceedings at GI ASCO and discuss novel targets for pancreatic cancer with Dr. Gauri Varadhachary, from the MD Anderson Cancer Center.  Finally, our afternoon session will look to the future in pancreatic cancer research, with a focus on utilization of treatment biomarkers and a basic science lecture from Marina Pasca di Magliano, PhD, of the University of Michigan.
