Pancreatic Cancer Comprehensive Care Program

Canopy Cancer Collective

1440 Foundation is creating the infrastructure necessary to drive adoption of comprehensive multidisciplinary care for pancreatic cancer, linked with a Learning Health Network of leading cancer centers in the US. To overcome key barriers, the project is providing expertise, infrastructure, services and grant funding to participating institutions. These resources will help to successfully build and run best in class Comprehensive Pancreatic Cancer Multidisciplinary Clinics. The clinics will provide patients with pancreatic cancer innovative, comprehensive, and compassionate care throughout their journey. Our goal is to create a stable environment where brilliant minds can innovate and be inspired. This program is under development and further details will be forthcoming.

Like Wikipedia and Yelp, this public database of clinical trial information enables anyone to annotate, structure, and rate trials while providing improved search tools. ClinWiki provides transparent and relevant views of trials for patients and their physicians so they can find and choose the best options. The goal is to surface more relevant results and increase innovation. The nonprofit is based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, using open source software and crowd-sourced data.

Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation

Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation funds high-risk and high-reward cancer research. The foundation identifies and enables young scientists who are brilliant, brave, and bold enough to go where others haven't. Their goal is to foster the talent capable of revolutionizing the prevention, detection, and treatment of all forms of cancer. Their scientists lead major research organizations and academic institutions around the world and have developed new treatments that are saving countless lives. Some of their scientists have received the highest honors and awards including, 12 Nobel Prizes, 7 National Medals of Science (highest scientific honor in USA), 86 elected to the National Academy of Sciences (science "Hall of Fame"), 37 Members of the National Academy of Medicine, and 15 Lasker Awards.
Fred Hutch and Hingorani Lab, Seattle, WA

Fred Hutch and Hingorani Lab

The Seattle-based nonprofit's mission is to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and related diseases. Researchers bring a relentless passion to their work and deliver hope to patients who come from all over the world. Interdisciplinary teams are working to detect cancers earlier, when cure rates are highest; developing effective treatments with fewer side effects; and learning how to prevent cancers from developing in the first place. Fred Hutch scientists at the Hingorani laboratory investigate the molecular and cellular mechanisms that drive the pathogenesis of pancreas cancer.
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, Manhattan Beach, CA

Pancreatic Cancer Action Network

Founded in 1999, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is dedicated to fighting the world's toughest cancer. They attack pancreatic cancer on all fronts: research, clinical initiatives, patient services and advocacy. Their efforts are amplified by a nationwide grassroots support network. PanCAN's goal is to improve patient outcomes today and to double survival. If you have pancreatic cancer, or know someone with it, PanCAN is a great resource to augment your current care team.
Parker Institute of Cancer Immunotherapy

Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy (PICI)

The Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy is radically changing the way research is done. Our model is designed to remove barriers, amplify collaborations and accelerate the development of immune therapies to make all cancers curable. We bring together the top minds in the field. We fuel the boldest ideas. And we give our researchers the highest class tools and resources to do the best science. At PICI, success doesn't mean we'll never worry about cancer again. It means we won't have to fear it.
