Pancreatic Cancer Research Interest Group

C3-PCRG Meeting

Dear Colleagues, It has been gratifying to see the tremendous explosion in research activity around pancreatic cancer at UCSD, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute and the Salk Institute over the past several years. To build on this, Dr. Andrew Lowy, Dr. Cosimo Commisso and Dr. Pamela Itkin-Ansari are delighted to announce the inaugural meeting of the C3- Pancreatic Cancer Research Group (C3-PCRG). This will build on the C3 collaborative agreement between UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center and the NCI basic cancer centers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. The goals of C3-PCRG will be to stimulate team science and translational research collaborations in the pancreatic cancer space and thereby; 1) increase the grant portfolio in pancreatic cancer at all 3 sites, 2) enhance opportunities for large grant submission (PO1, SPORE), 3) facilitate sharing of resources such as mouse models, cell lines, tool compounds, 4) more closely align basic and clinician researchers working in pancreatic cancer, and 5) attract new minds to the field from other research areas. We envision the structure of these monthly meetings to be relatively informal with two 20 minute talks, one each by a basic researcher and a clinician or translational researcher, with ample time for questions and discussion. There will be food and drink as well! The first meeting will be held at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute’s Fishman Auditorium on June 4th at 4:30 PM. We are really hoping for a crowded room and some great discussion. The first meeting agenda is listed below: Welcome: Dr. Garth Powis, Professor and Director of SBMRI Cancer Center C3-PCRG - Goals and opportunities: Dr. Andrew Lowy, Professor and Director of Surgical Oncology, UCSD Presentation 1: Dr. Andrew Lowy - Pancreatic cancer: Where do we stand? Presentation 2: Dr. Garth Powis - Tumor-stroma interactions in pancreatic cancer. Discussion
