Program areas at PCAN

Research grants and clinical initiatives - pancan's research grants and clinical initiatives are changing the landscape of Pancreatic Cancer research. The research grants department administers a competitive grants program, awarding the most meritorious research projects with a focus on those that advance our clinical initiatives, to the brightest scientists, to translate the best research into the clinic. To date the grants program has funded 184 grants, totaling over $52m in funding, which was distributed to 179 scientists at 70 institutions around the country. Groundbreaking initiatives like our "know your tumor" precision medicine service, and precision promise, an innovative clinical trial platform for patients with Pancreatic Cancer, play a pivotal role in changing outcomes for patients. In addition, agreements for the precision promise program and support for other priority clinical initiatives totaled about $1.5m and have been included in research for this fiscal year.
Patient services (patient central) - patient central is a comprehensive service providing immediate and free information and education about Pancreatic Cancer, diagnosis, treatment options, clinical trials, diet and nutrition, specialists and support resources to help them make informed decisions with their healthcare team. We have the largest, most up-to-date clinical trials database in the country and provide patients with personalized clinical trial searches so that they understand all of their treatment options. Our patient central staff - made up of expert, understanding, compassionate people - shares more resources and speaks with more Pancreatic Cancer patients than any other Cancer organization in the world. Our patient registry, an active database of patient information, was developed to help advance research and improve care for patients battling Pancreatic Cancer.
Government affairs and advocacy - we drive legislative support for increased federal research funding - critical because approximately 80 percent of all Pancreatic Cancer research funding comes from the federal government. We led the fight to pass the recalcitrant Cancer research act in congress, making Pancreatic Cancer a national priority, and establishing a scientific framework to research the disease. Our grassroots Network and advocacy efforts on capitol hill led to the creation of the first ever dedicated Pancreatic Cancer research program at the dod which allows congress to direct focused funding to Pancreatic Cancer research. Along with our supporters, we have created a grassroots movement - telling our stories to congress in an effort to raise more awareness about Pancreatic Cancer, and in turn, the critical need for more research funding. As of 2017, nci funding for Pancreatic Cancer research had increased to more than $177 million.
