Registration for virtual attendance is now open (see below).

This conference is hosted by our CRC and serves as the inaugural meeting for a newly initiated cooperation network PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH CENTERS GERMANY, which includes all four pancreatic cancer centers in Germany funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). These include the Clinical Research Unit CRU5002 "Deciphering Genome Dynamics for Subtype-specific Therapy in Pancreatic Cancer" (Göttingen), the Research Training Group RTG2751 "Inflammatory Factors as Modulators of Early Pancreatic Cancer Development" (Halle), CRU325 "Clinical Relevance of Tumour-Microenvironment Interactions in Pancreatic Cancer" (Marburg) and our CRC.

The conference is a 3-day hybrid event, while physical attendance is by invitation only, we will share a Zoom link for online access.

You can expect an exciting scientific programme with a great lineup of experts in the field. The conference will feature the following sessions: Out-of-the-box / Cell-of-origin, differentiation, subtypes / Tumor microenvironment / Genome dynamics / Emerging therapeutic concepts.
