Reshaping the future of Pancreatic Cancer

Friday 9th, June 2023, 10:30am to 11:30am (AEST)

It’s time to reshape the future for people living with pancreatic cancer, one of the most lethal cancers. This disease has a five-year survival rate of just 12% and most people die within six to nine months of diagnosis. Very little progress has been made to change these numbers in the last 40 years. One of the reasons pancreatic cancer is referred to as a ‘silent disease’ is that it’s frequently diagnosed in the later stages of growth. This is because the pancreas is located behind the stomach and the cancer can remain undetected until it grows large enough to affect nearby organs. At Garvan, our aim is to triple survival rates by 2030. Spaces are limited in the auditorium, so registration is essential.
