Innovation and collaboration is the key to solving the deadly puzzle of pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer will be the #2 cancer killer by 2020. This is due to how little is still known about this disease (and how to treat it) as well as its increased incidence.

It is therefore with a strong sense of urgency that a leading group of cancer researchers and clinicians in Canada and Israel have joined forces to better understand this devastating illness, first at the genomic level and then to translate those findings in clinical testing to offer patients real hope for a longer life. The positive progress of this collaboration has been very encouraging.

Your donations will directly support the continuation of cutting-edge research which is already yielding promising results:

  • The Alex U. Soyka Pancreatic Cancer Project, an international collaboration focused on uncovering the genetic drivers of pancreatic cancer
  • COMPASS, a world-leading molecular profiling study of tumors from patients with advanced cancer
  • PancOne™, Pancreatic Cancer Canada’s Pancreatic Oncology Network which links Centres of Excellence across Canada in collaborative research projects which encourage timely results and eliminates research duplication.

Our prestigious team of international pancreas cancer experts includes Dr. Steven Gallinger at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre/UHN/Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr. Ittai Ben-Porath, in concert with four other investigators, at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Dr. Lincoln Stein and his team at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, and Dr. Talia Golan of Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv.
