On November 11th and 12th 2016 almost 200 experts in pancreatic cancer from 22 different countries from all over Europe have attended the First Pancreas Academy Meeting in Vienna, Austria. The two days event combined high-end educational lectures with podium discussions on unmet needs in the treatment of pancreatic cancer patients.
