What We Do


The Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund Tissue Bank is a national - and ultimately international - resource that will help develop new treatments and bring these to patients much faster. It brings together surgeons, pathologists, oncologists, researchers and database experts to co-ordinate a national effort to improve survival for pancreatic cancer patients.

The Tissue Bank is a collaboration between six UK hospitals that are renowned for their excellence in treating pancreatic cancer patients - and we're already in discussion with more hospitals about joining us.
