The National Pancreas Foundation is committed to encouraging physicians to specialize in the research, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the pancreas. To date, we have awarded nearly $3,000,000 to worthy basic science and clinical research in the field of pancreas disease. Information regarding our grant program is available here. NPF is an annual sponsor of the American Pancreas Association annual meeting, and attends several conferences throughout the year including the annual meetings of the American College of Gastroenterology and Digestive Disease Week. We are continually seeking to collaborate with other medical associations to be heard as one voice, particularly in our combined efforts to increase National Institute of Health funding for pancreas research.
