PanCAN Scientific Summit 2022

September 12 & 13 | Boston



To fight the world’s toughest cancer, PanCAN has built the Community for Progress, a robust and collaborative research community to tackle the disease from all angles. These scientists, clinicians, patients, industry partners and visionary donors drive groundbreaking scientific and clinical initiatives to improve outcomes for all patients with pancreatic cancer.

This year, we are excited to bring the PanCAN Community for Progress together in person for PanCAN Scientific Summit 2022, where you will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet our new PanCAN research grant recipients
  • Learn more about our top research initiatives
  • Hear from PanCAN’s young investigators as well as senior research grant recipients
  • Engage in discussions about emerging science in the field
  • Meet colleagues, collaborators, patient research advocates, and some rising stars in the field

When the Summit ends, we hope you stay in Boston to attend the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Special Conference: Pancreatic Cancer. PanCAN is proud to be a major sponsor of this conference and we hope to see you there after the Summit concludes.

PanCAN has a bold goal to drive the 5-year survival rate of pancreatic cancer to 20% by 2030. We can’t do it without you! Thank you for joining us as we keep pancreatic cancer research moving forward, together.
