Welcome to the APGI

The APGI is excited to see what new opportunities 'team science' collaboration will bring and remain committed to connecting Australian scientists, healthcare professionals and community members so that together we can improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

The APGI brings together the expertise of pancreatic cancer scientists and healthcare professionals across Australia, and is dedicated to improving outcomes for pancreatic patients and their families.

 

Established in 2009 with the aim to create a catalogue of genetic changes important in pancreatic cancer by using state of the art genome sequencing techniques.  This significant milestone was reached ahead of it; goal in early 2014, with recruitment of our 750th APGI participant and submission of the 450th pancreatic cancer sample for genome sequencing.  This ambitious achievement has resulted in pancreatic cancer sequencing data being readily available to the research community from all over the world.  This data is extremely valuable and will continue to be utilised well into the future. 



IMPaCT Trial

Individualised Molecular Pancreatic Cancer Therapy (IMPaCT) is a new Australian clinical trial looking at individualising the treatment of patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer.

2013 Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month Launch at Parliament House Sydney

The Hon Jillian Skinner, NSW Minister for Health and Minister for Medical Research joined APGI researchers, Garvan Institute of Medical Research colleagues, pancreatic cancer patients and their family members at Parliament House in Sydney recently to officially launch the month of November 2013 as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month. At the conclusion of the formal proceedings a large cake in the shape of a purple ribbon was cut and guests enjoyed the opportunity to chat with one another over morning tea. We have heard some truly moving and extraordinary stories over the months from patients and their carers, one in particular we would like to share with you here. From Erica, who warmly addressed the Minister and audience at last week’s Parliament House event with an insightful speech on her roller coaster journey.
