PancreasFest is an annual meeting of pancreas physicians and translational researchers who convene during the last week of July to find new ways of working together to improve patient care.
PancreasFest is an umbrella conference that supports multiple smaller meetings with very focused goals. These include education programs, discussion sessions for new ideas, learning from other disciplines, investigator meetings, and efforts to help young investigators explore and get started on their own projects. PancreasFest is a meeting with a pragmatic purpose: multi-center research.
CAPER offers travel scholarships to trainees and junior faculty to attend PancreasFest. The travel scholarship application is included within the Call for Abstracts submission process.
The Collaborative Alliance for Pancreatic Education and Research’s (CAPER) mission is: (a) to facilitate the collaboration of researchers of pancreatic diseases and to support scientifically rigorous multi-center studies in pancreatic diseases; (b) to educate and train healthcare providers in pancreatic diseases; (c) and to increase public health awareness regarding pancreatic diseases.
