Pancreatic cancer is one of the most common causes of cancer-related deaths in New South Wales and Australia. Over the last several decades, through the combined and dedicated effort of the pancreatic cancer team of surgeons, clinicians, nurses and researchers, the Royal North Shore Hospital campus has evolved to become a high-volume centre of excellence in pancreatic cancer surgery, treatment and research. Our patients have experienced some of the best outcomes achieved in Australia, living twice as long after diagnosis compared to the average Australian pancreatic cancer patient.

In this very special Christmas Kolling Knowledge event, Associate Professor Pavlakis along with Associate Professor Viive Howell from the Bill Walsh Translational Cancer Research Laboratory, Kolling Institute, will talk about the innovative research conducted here at the Institute and how this has led to being able to use biomarkers in tumour tissue to predict patient outcomes.

Sandy Eglin who has been treated by A/Prof Pavlakis will share her story and highlight why she is forever grateful for the wonderful support and dedication of our oncologists and researchers.

Join us at 10 am for the event opening, informative session & a morning tea.
