Welcome to new HDFCCC Members
- Dr. Margaret Tempero, Director of the UCSF Pancreas Center, and Dr. Stephen K. Van Den Eeden at the Kaiser Foundation Research Institute -- in collaboration with investigators in the Diabetes Center, Dr. Mark Anderson, Dr. Michael German and Dr. Scott A. Oakes -- have been awarded an NIH U01 grant. This cooperative agreement from the NIH/NIDDK Consortium for the Study of Chronic Pancreatitis, Diabetes, and Pancreatic Cancer (CSCPDPC) will study how chronic pancreatitis, pre-diabetes, diabetes, and pancreatic cancer are related to each other. This collaborative consortium brings together expertise, unique data, and innovative studies with a mission to further understand the complex relationship among these various disease states, and ultimately provide better prevention and treatment for patients.
