Pancreas Centre BC researchers lead a new national study to investigate metastatic pancreatic cancer

Drs. Renouf and Schaeffer are leading a new pan-Canadian research project titled Enhanced Pancreatic Cancer Profiling for Individualized Care, funded by the Terry Fox Research Institute. EPPIC looks at DNA and RNA sequenced from metastatic pancreatic cancer tumours to improve understanding as to why some individuals receive treatment better than others. The $5-million funding from the Terry Fox Research Institute will support the sequencing of metastatic pancreatic tumours that EPPIC aims to do for 400 patients in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and B.C. and expand the program across Canada.
