Jefferson University Hospitals

Donate to Pancreas Cancer Research & Education

Each year, more than 53,000 people are affected by pancreatic cancer nationwide. Our team is finding new ways to diagnose and treat this life-threatening disease. Our research will benefit future generations of patients and their families worldwide.

Dr. Yeo, an internationally renowned leader in his field, joined Jefferson in 2005 to head a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and scientists in furthering knowledge of pancreatic cancer and related illnesses. His work explores avenues of early detection - including investigations into genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related links to the disease - and more effective screening procedures with the aim of maximizing treatment outcomes.

The Jefferson team's research aims to uncover treatments that will be genetically targeted to each individual and will integrate surgery with oncology, pathology, gastroenterology, pain management, palliative care, genetics and nursing.

We ask you to partner with us as we confront the challenges of pancreatic and related cancers. Your gift will provide support for Jefferson researchers and clinicians as they advance knowledge by developing innovative techniques for detection, prevention and treatment of these cancers. Please join us on this path to discovery.

Contributions to the Pancreas and Related Cancer Surgical Research and Education Fund support a variety of objectives at Jefferson, including:

  • Increased laboratory research
  • An endowed fellowship in hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery
  • An endowed chair in pancreatic cancer research
  • A dedicated center for ongoing research and patient care
