AGITG - Australasian Gastro Intestinal Trial Group

Pancreas Cancer Research Workshop

The Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group (AGITG) and Australasian Pancreatic Club (APC) invite you to attend a half day workshop to foster collaboration and develop new research concepts in pancreatic cancer.

The aim of the workshop is to develop new collaborations and new research ideas involving the APC and the AGITG. It will look at translational research, and projects in the treatment and prevention of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma across a broad range of activities. This includes basic science and clinical trials, through to ultimately impacting on better outcomes for patients. The hope is that this will ultimately lead to new initiatives under the umbrella of APC and AGITG in the treatment, prevention and understanding of pancreatic cancer. The workshop is not specifically there to critique or review concepts in terms of whether they should go ahead or not, but rather to discuss them at an earlier stage of their development.

The workshop will be held at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (Level 2, Room 207) on Monday 7th October 2013 from 10am to 2pm.

There will be presentations by international and local guests in the morning addressing the US Research Collaboration Experience; the Consumer Perspective on Australian Research Priorities; and Tissue Acquisition.

Members of AGITG and APC are invited to submit new research concepts for presentation and discussion with the aim of further developing into collaborative research projects.

Following a networking lunch Dr Norman Swan will facilitate a discussion focussed on Optimising Research Through Collaboration. We hope that you are able to attend the workshop and represent your institution in the facilitated discussion.

Registration are now closed.
