A Message from the President and CEO

Our guest columnist this month is the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's Vice President of Scientific and Medical Affairs, Lynn Matrisian, PhD. Lynn joined our staff in January of this year, after a very successful career as a cancer biologist. In this column, she addresses 2013 research grants program and introduces an exciting new grant mechanism added to the grant lineup this year.

Dear Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Friends:

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's 2013 research grants program, which was established in 2003. Remarkably, more than $4 million in grants will be distributed this year, the highest sum awarded annually to date. The 2013 funding brings the grand total bestowed through the program over the past decade to an incredible $16.7 million.
