Welcome to MolDiag-PaCa

  • MolDiag-Paca Consortium: "A Pancreas Cancer Research Celebration" CNIO Madrid,
    June 8th 2009, 16-19:30
    We desperately need to make progress towards reducing pancreas cancer mortality. Recent advances in mouse models of the disease, the genetic factors involved in its development, and in the treatment of patients with respectable tumours are paving the way to making such progress
  • WORKSHOP: Epidemiology and its application to pancreatic cancer.
    On Feb 5 a MolDiagPaca workshop on epidemiology and its application to pancreatic cancer will be held at CNIO in Madrid, Spain. Renowned speakers will present on basic principles of epidemiology, and give an overview of genetic epidemiology, environmental and genetic factors of pancreatic cancer, including possible susceptibility genes in sporadic disease vs. familial disease. The magnitude of the disease will be presented and etiological factors and somatic genetic alterations in pancreas cancer will be addressed. Finally, future directions in pancreatic cancer research will be outlined.

  • Executive Summary of our first annual report with MolDiagPaca accomplishments during its first year
  • The Clinical course on pancreatic cancer within the MolDiagPaCa network took place at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden on November 23, 2007. The course was especially adapted to the needs of non-clinical pancreatic cancer researchers and as a refreshment course for clinicians.
  • The Teaching course on the pathology of pancreatic tumors took place in Verona, on May 18th 2007 with 88 participants, 34 of which were not directly involved with MolDiagPaca: In the last few years, new concepts regarding the histological and molecular subclassification of exocrine pancreatic tumors have been established.
  • The MolTools - DKFZ - IGB - MolDiagPaca Practical Course: Analysis and Interpretation of Complex Transcript Data took place at DKFZ in Heidelberg during the period Thursday, 14 December, to Saturday, 16 December 2006. In total 16 scientists of different European countries participated.
