Pancreas cancer incidence is on the rise. Treatment paradigms are changing and many novel approaches are under development in this disease. This one day course in conjunction with the Center for Pancreas Cancer Research at Memorial Sloan Kettering is very timely and will review the epidemiology, genomic, molecular and pathologic underpinnings of this disease along with discussing diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for localized, locally advanced and metastatic pancreas adenocarcinoma. An emphasis will be on multidisciplinary decision making and will include a case-based focus. The course will also discuss novel treatments under development and where the field is heading.

This course is designed for medical and surgical oncologists, gastroenterologists, internal medicine specialists, pathologists, geneticists, pharmacists, nursing, advanced practice practitioners, trainees and other disciplines
