#SinCAPA-First National Pancreatic Cancer Researchers Symposium

Better late than never!! This post is a summary of the First National Pancreatic Cancer Researchers Symposium that we organised together with Pilar Martín Duque, Roberto Pazo and Antonio Antón in Zaragoza on November 21st to celebrate the World Pancreatic Cancer Day. 124 participants (29 speakers/chairs+95 attendants) and a lot of great science concentrated in one day! Our main objective was to create a forum in which different researchers interested in pancreatic cancer can share knowledge, materials and points of view. We had great talks both from the basic and the clinical point of view.
