Successful first scientific meeting of ALIPANC

Successful first scientific meeting of ALIPANC

The first scientific meeting of ALIPANC, organized by Alejo Efeyan (CNIO) took place on March 5, 2024 at the CNIO, with the attendance of 120 researchers from 36 groups distributed throughout Spain.

After a brief introduction by Núria Malats, the Opening Conference was given by Mariano Barbacid (CNIO) who presented his group’s studies aimed at inhibiting KRAS signaling in pancreatic cancer. Subsequently, 15 presentations were given by 15 groups on translational and clinical aspects of pancreatic cancer, followed by rounds of questions with a large participation. The day ended with a Closing Conference, given by Paco Sánchez-Madrid (Hospital de la Princesa, UAM and CNIC) who summarized the most important contributions of his group to the knowledge of the biology of the immunological synapse. The scientific discussions were also extended during the coffee breaks and lunches, fostering collaborations between the ALIPANC groups.

After this successful 1st scientific meeting, all that remains is to start working on the preparation of the 2nd meeting, the date and place of which will be discussed soon at the ALIPANC Management Committee.

The Galician city is preparing to host the 56th Congress of the European Pancreatic Club (EPC), which will take place from June 26-29, 2024. This event is a unique opportunity for interaction between groups studying the pancreas and to promote collaboration between a multitude of researchers.

Santiago de Compostela, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage City, will be the perfect setting for this congress that combines the best of scientific research with the cultural richness of the Spanish region. The EPC was founded in 1965, and since then, has promoted collaborative basic and clinical research in the pancreas setting.

During the congress, participants will have the opportunity to present the latest advances in the field of the pancreas, as well as a space in which to share and exchange ideas.

Registration is now open!

Important Dates:

  • Submission of Abstracts: Until March 11, 2024.
  • Deadline for registration: Until June 26, 2024.
