The Interface of Pancreatic Cancer With Diabetes, Obesity and Inflammation: Research Gaps and Opportunities
The purpose of The Interface of Pancreatic Cancer with Diabetes, Obesity, and Inflammation: Research Gaps and Opportunities Workshop is to explore the relationships of diabetes, obesity, and inflammation on the mechanisms, diagnosis and possible treatment of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). We plan sessions which will focus on the role of diabetes and altered intracellular metabolism on the development of PDAC, the mechanisms and diagnosis of PDAC-caused diabetes, the role of obesity as a risk factor and cause of PDAC, and the role of inflammation and immune mechanisms on the development and possible treatment of PDAC. Recommendations which arise from the workshop will inform possible future funding initiatives of NIDDK.
In addition to presentations from an international faculty of experts, poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts will also be presented. Abstract requirements can be found on the registration website. Attendance at the workshop is without charge, but registration is required.
This meeting is being held in conjunction with The 2017 Annual Mid-Atlantic Diabetes Research Symposium.
