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.

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.
