2022 PCARP Focus Areas
  • Early detection research for pancreatic cancer, including the prevalence in individuals with pre-diabetes and diabetes and/or those in underserved ethnic and minority communities
  • Supportive care interventions, patient-reported outcomes, quality of life, and perspectives during treatment and survivorship
  • Understanding the relationship between metabolic disruptions in pancreatic cancer and their systemic effects, including diabetes and cachexia
  • Understanding precursors, origins, and early progression of pancreatic cancer
  • Understanding the events that promote pancreatic cancer metastasis
  • Understanding the relationship between oncogenic signaling and the tumor microenvironment that drives drug resistance and therapeutic response
  • New drug development targeted toward cancer sensitivity and resistance mechanisms including immune mechanisms of resistance
