Driving Clinical Translational Collaborations to Improve Patient Outcomes

The program identifies and funds innovative, multi-institutional translational research projects, advancing research from the laboratory to the clinic. These projects will significantly impact early diagnosis, increase surgical intervention, improve therapies, identify personalized medicine approaches and ultimately find a cure for pancreatic cancer.

Funding from the Lustgarten Foundation is absolutely critical to the advancement of this research. Scientists are able to take promising ideas and expand them out to the larger studies necessary to more definitively evaluate findings. Additionally, these funds help support the work of post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty, cultivating the next generation of scientists who will work to cure pancreatic cancer.
