Stand Up To Cancer: Cancer Fundraising Benefiting Pancreatic Cancer Research at Penn Medicine
Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center is second in the United States for cancer research funding from the National Institutes of Health, and in the top five nationally for research funding from the National Cancer Institute.
As part of the Abramson Cancer Center, cancer researchers at Penn Medicine are at the forefront of developing new, personalized approaches to cancer treatment including treatments for pancreatic cancer. Cancer researchers at Penn seek to increase cancer survival rates, discover new cancer causes, and improve cancer prognoses for patients.
It's because of this dedication to cancer research and clinical care for cancer patients that Penn Medicine was chosen as the lead site to coordinate a "dream team" that focuses on pancreatic cancer research and treatment.
