The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s (PanCAN) Scientific and Medical Advisory Board (SMAB) is composed of leading cancer scientists, clinicians and healthcare professionals from institutions across the United States who specialize in pancreatic cancer. The SMAB provides scientific and clinical expertise to guide us in planning and implementing our research initiatives, in-depth information and educational services for patients, their families and caregivers, and healthcare professionals.

All SMAB members contribute their expertise on a pro bono basis with no conflict of interest between their professional work and the volunteer work they do for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
