The London Pancreas Workshop was launched in 2006 and convenes every two years.
A wide range of topics relating to pancreatic cancer's clinical and scientific problems are discussed and progress updates presented.
We attract delegates from the UK and abroad comprising: clinicians (surgeons, gastroenterologists, radiologists, pathologists, oncologists amongst others), scientists, pharmaceutical company reps and pancreatic cancer charity representatives.
The London Pancreas Workshop 2020 is taking place online.
Recordings of the presentations will be made available to watch on 7th September for those who have registered. Live Q&A sessions, break out rooms and poster presentations will take place on 11th September via Zoom.
Registration for this event has now closed.
