The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has awarded over $5 million through its 2013 research grants program.
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network grants program has awarded $17.6 million in research funding from 2003-2013 to bright and motivated scientists across the country. To date, 94 grants have been awarded to 92 researchers. Learn about all of the research grant recipients and their funded projects.
The pancreatic cancer research community has historically been small, fragmented, and poorly funded. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network believes that a comprehensive strategy is needed to achieve a comprehensive cure. Through our research grants program, we attract brilliant early career scientists and investigators with innovative ideas to study pancreatic cancer. By recruiting the brightest scientists with the most novel ideas, we continue to build a broad research community, poised to make significant scientific discoveries.
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network grants are administered in partnership with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) to ensure rigorous peer-review of grant applications, so that only the most promising science is selected for funding.
Over the years, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network grant recipients have made significant progress towards the understanding of pancreatic cancer, improved diagnostic tools, and novel treatment modalities.
