Pancreatic Cancer Research Center

Pancreatic cancer has low five-year survival rates. Penn's Pancreatic Cancer Research Center is attacking this problem from multiple angles with one mission: to turn pancreatic cancer into a chronic, treatable illness.

Our team includes nationally recognized oncologists, scientists, surgeons, gastroenterologists and pathologists, all working together to create personalized treatment plans from the most advanced therapies available, including clinical trials.

Clinical trials are state-of-the-art therapies, such as immunotherapy, that extend pancreatic cancer treatment beyond chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. Our clinical trials are designed to provide what we call “hope for all stages.”

We also offer support for people working through the often scary time following diagnosis. Our team includes a talented oncology nurse navigator to guide patients through every phase of care.
