Glasgow Pancreatic Cancer Symposium

Friday 3rd May 2024

Custom House 1, Clayton Hotel, Glasgow

Pancreatic cancer is one of the hardest cancers to treat and has the poorest survival rate of all common cancers. For decades, survival has barely improved so we urgently need to find better methods of detection and effective treatments to build a better future for people with pancreatic cancer, and their relatives. The CRUK Scotland Centre is funded by Cancer Research UK and is a partnership between the Universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, with pancreatic cancer as one of our major themes.

This symposium will provide a space to explore state-of-the-art research in pancreatic cancer. We have built an exciting programme, with the opportunity to hear experts in the field from across the UK and around the world discuss the latest advances in discovery science and clinical research.

The symposium will be in person only to allow the speakers to share unpublished data and allow full discussion. Places are limited so book now!


The symposium is free to attend. To register, please complete the form.



We would like to give students and postdocs the opportunity to showcase their work and deliver a flash talk and/or a poster during the symposium.

Deadline for abstract is Friday 15th March, 5pm.

The presenting author must register for the event.

Submit you abstract here.
