London Pancreas Workshop 2018

On Friday 4th May, BCI hosted the seventh London Pancreas Workshop, co-organised by Prof Hemant Kocher and our Director Prof Nick Lemoine, which attracted delegates from across Europe and America, with over 140 attendees in total. The biennial event is recognised as a forum for state-of-the-art clinical and basic research in pancreatic cancer.

The areas of focus for this year’s workshop were diagnostics, clinical trials and preclinical work for targeting pancreatic cancer. We heard a variety of interesting talks in these areas, delivered by researchers renowned in their fields.
