I am delighted to welcome you to participate in Pancreas 2018, Innovations in the Care of Pancreatic Cancer. This international conference will be hosted and held at the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus Baltimore, Maryland, April 26-29, 2018.
This Conference will provide a common platform for all specialists involved in pancreatic cancer to interact and share the latest information and developments. This will include promoting the highest standards of treatment, education and training, clinical and basic research, disease prevention, and patient care at a multi-disciplinary level. Pancreas 2018 will bring together medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists, and clinical and basic scientists from all over the globe, to explore current knowledge in the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
Pancreas 2018 follows on from the successful meetings in Glasgow (2016), Verona (2014) and Kyoto (2012) and is a major event in the calendar, providing a unique opportunity for all those working in the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer, to learn of the latest developments in this rapidly changing and expanding field.
Baltimore is Maryland’s largest city and economic hub. It is best known for its beautiful Inner Harbor, quaint neighbourhoods, avid sports fans for the Baltimore Ravens and Orioles, and of course, the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Medical Campus. Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, with 650 daily flights from 70 destinations, is only 15 minutes from the city centre making Baltimore a convenient and accessible destination for international travellers.
We are looking forward to a very successful Conference; one which reflects our strategy of mixing science and topical issues, with the latest advances in research, technology and clinical care.
We hope you share our enthusiasm for the Conference and forward to seeing you in Baltimore in 2018.
Dr. Christopher Wolfgang
