Better treatments, and ultimately cures, for people with pancreatic cancer begin with scientific research. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is committed to advancing pancreatic cancer research through strategic actions. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is building a comprehensive pancreatic cancer research community and working to provide the tools and resources this community needs in order to make scientific breakthroughs.

We are awarding more than $5.1 million through our 2014 research grants program. Nearly $5 million in awards has been announced so far, with two more grants to follow. We are building and expanding a Community for Progress by awarding research funding to the most promising and innovative investigators and providing career support and mentorship to early-career scientists.

In addition, our advocacy efforts have contributed to an increase in National Cancer Institute annual funding for pancreatic cancer research from $17 million in 1999 to $104.8 million in 2012. We also work as a convener the research community, bringing together scientists, government, and industry to share information and form collaborations.
