OUR MULTIDISCIPLINARY SPECIALIST TEAM

Our team consists of leaders in the fields of surgery, oncology, radiology, gastroenterology, pathology, nuclear medicine, endocrinology and nursing.

OUR RESEARCH

Despite improvements in surgical & oncological management, pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis. While the Australian Pancreatic Centre prides itself on better outcomes for patients, breakthroughs in treatment are desperately needed.
The Centre’s involvement with research into the basic sciences and translation of these findings into treatments for patients is essential for changing the paradigm for pancreatic cancer patients.
