Research

Members of the pancreatic cancer research team

Mayo Clinic doctors and scientists created one of the largest patient and tissue registries for pancreatic cancer in the United States. This registry is an important tool for cancer research.

Mayo Clinic doctors and scientists are dedicated to improving the care of people with pancreatic cancer.

Mayo Clinic is one of the few medical centers in the U.S. recognized as a Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) for pancreatic cancer research, funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). And at Mayo Clinic's Gastrointestinal Cancer Program, researchers study new diagnostic tools, treatments and approaches to prevention of pancreatic cancer. They are advancing scientific knowledge of cancers affecting the intestinal tract and improving the quality of life of people affected by these diseases.

Areas of research include:

  • Proving radiation treatment can be an important addition to surgery associated with a lower risk of cancer recurrence
  • Refining guidelines to identify patients at higher risk of pancreatic cancer
  • Exploring the potential of new immunotherapies
  • Using advanced imaging techniques to help predict whether pancreatic cysts, a common, usually harmless condition, will develop cancer
  • Evaluating whether people with a rare type of pancreatic cancer would benefit from surgery
  • Understanding what causes pancreatic cancer, which is the key to finding new cancer therapies

Mayo Clinic is also active in a large NCI-funded multisite study, conducted by the Pancreatic Cancer Genetic Epidemiology (PACGENE) Consortium, looking at the role heredity plays in pancreatic cancer. To aid this research, Mayo Clinic has created one of the largest patient and tissue registries for pancreatic cancer in the United States.

Mayo Clinic doctor Michael B. Wallace, M.D., discusses methods of screening people at high risk of pancreatic cancer in order to diagnose the condition earlier.
