TGen Dr. Michael Barrett awarded $200,000 grant at national cancer conference in San Diego
Date:4/9/2014

double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020.

"The most promising science has been selected for funding through a rigorous peer-review process. This year's grant recipients hail from leading institutions throughout the country and range from early career investigators continuing to build the field of pancreatic cancer leaders to more senior scientists," said Julie Fleshman, president and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. "Their collective efforts have the potential to answer important questions that could lead to significant scientific advances for pancreatic cancer, and ultimately improve patient outcomes. We look forward to working with our new grantees and welcoming them to our team."

Pancreatic cancer annually takes the lives of more than 38,000 Americans, making it the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. A staggering 75 percent of those diagnosed die within the first year, and only 6 percent survive more than five years.

"Pancreatic cancer is among the most deadly of cancers," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), and Chief Executive Officer of AACR. "With death rates steadily climbing over the past decade, more research into pancreatic cancer is urgently needed. The AACR is, therefore, proud to be partnering with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to support cutting-edge scientific research projects that have the potential to lead to major breakthroughs in the prevention, detection, and treatment of this devastating disease."
