The Lustgarten Foundation is the largest private funder of the world’s preeminent pancreatic cancer researchers. Join us and support pancreatic cancer research.
The American Pancreatic Association is a membership organization for physicians and researchers interested in diseases of the exocrine pancreas. Our mission is to foster clinical and basic science research needed to cure diseases of the pancreas. We strive to continue advancing the field of research, while training the next generation of researchers devoted to finding a cure for these deadly diseases. Recognizing that progress in understanding, diagnosing, and treating pancreatic diseases requires multidisciplinary analysis, the APA is reaching out to broaden the participation from pancreas- related disciplines, which perhaps have been underrepresented in the past: endoscopy, radiology, and pathology, among others.
The American Gastroenterological Association’s peer-reviewed journals offer high-quality research on current advances in GI and hepatology: Gastroenterology, CGH, CMGH, TIGE and Gastro Hep Advances.
PancreasFest is an annual meeting of pancreas physicians and translational researchers who convene during the last week of July to find new ways of working together to improve patient care.
PancreasFest is an umbrella conference that supports multiple smaller meetings with very focused goals. These include education programs, discussion sessions for new ideas, learning from other disciplines, investigator meetings, and efforts to help young investigators explore and get started on their own projects. PancreasFest is a meeting with a pragmatic purpose: multicenter research.
The Collaborative Alliance for Pancreatic Education and Research (CAPER) is a community of physicians and scientists with special interest in the pancreas, formed with the objective of promoting research collaboration and education.
Founded in 1923, the American College of Radiology® is at the forefront of radiology evolution, representing more than 41,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians and medical physicists.
The Society of Abdominal Radiology (SAR) was created in 2012 out of the merger of the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists and the Society of Uroradiology, two premier organizations during their existences. The Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists and the Society of Uroradiology first collaborated in 2000, as they produced the First Abdominal Radiology Course, which will continue under the Society of Abdominal Radiology. The success of the Course was one of many reasons why the two organizations felt as if they could be stronger and provide more as one society. The Society of Abdominal Radiology was formed with a vision of being the organization in which the medical profession as a whole looked to for expertise in abdominal radiology.
