We are proud to see our researchers heavily featured in the latest Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund (PCRF) Newsletter.

Pancreatic cancer is a prominent research focus here at BC. As detailed in the newsletter, we also house the world's first national Tissue Bank and our director, Professor Lemoine, said:

This may well be the most important developmentin resourcing UK pancreatic cancer research in a generation, and we're extremely proud to be involved.

We couldn't achieve any of this without the substantial funding PCRF grants our researchers who apply for it; we very much appreciate all of the hard work of PCRF's fundraisers that contributes to it.Prof. John F Marshall

Our very own Prof John Marshall has been doing his part to add to the pot recently, too, in his Howards Way Walkers event that he completed a week ago.

You can still donate to up their total and help them reach their £15,000 target. Prepare yourself for the disturbing after photo of John's foot when you click to this page!

Also in the Autumn PCRF newsletter is our Dr Patricia Sancho from our Centre for Stem Cells in Cancer & Ageing, commenting on one of her current projects, which focuses on pancreatic cancer cell metabolism.

We also spotted alumna Dr Fieke Froeling, former BCI PhD student with Prof Kocher, whose work on Vitamin A and pancreatic cancer you can read more about here.

Looking closesly, Dr Tatjana Crnogorac-Jurcevic and Prabhu Arumagam are also featured in this edition's images.

Thank you to PCRF and all its supporters for continuing to fund our research at BCI and nationally.
