Researchers Funded By The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Leverage $9.15 Million Investment By The Organization Into $91 Million In Subsequent Pancreatic Cancer Research Funding
Date:5/15/2013

ing available to current and future pancreatic cancer researchers, while allowing us to advocate to make sure federal funding remains at a sufficient level to promote much-needed progress in the field.

"A 10-fold return on our investment demonstrates the highly-effective strategy of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's research grants program and a sound investment for our donors and corporate partners.  " stated Julie Fleshman , president and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  "Making an investment in pancreatic cancer research is critical now more than ever as the disease is anticipated to move from the fourth to the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States by 2020, or possibly as early as 2015."

Another metric of success noted in the evaluation was the grant recipients' ability to publish their work. Publication in peer-reviewed biomedical journals validates the credibility of scientists' results and allows others to read and build upon their results. The 62 researchers who received grants from 2003-2011 authored an impressive 813 papers, many of which were published in high-tier journals. Other investigators are reading their work and building upon their results, exponentially enhancing our scientific knowledge about the disease, as evidenced by over 6,200 citations of the papers published by the grantees. 

"These results indicate that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's research strategy is working and that we are building a critical mass of scientists working and staying in the field of pancreatic cancer.  Due to our efforts more scientists are studying the disease and we now understand its biology better than ever before, building the foundation of knowledge necessary to translate into better diagnostic tools and improved treatment options," added Fleshman.
