Congratulations to Dr. Koushik Das and team at Washington University for their important work on predicting which pancreatic cysts may become cancerous. ASGE is proud to be a supporter of this research through its Endoscopic Research Award program.
Pancreatic cancer kills more than 45,000 people in the U.S. each year, mostly due to the fact that it is detected too late for surgery to remove and halt the spread of the cancer. This study represents a big step toward improving the medical community’s ability to evaluate and navigate this complex situation. Read more
