The Pancreatic Cancer Detection Consortium (PCDC) develops and tests new molecular and imaging biomarkers to detect early stage pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and its precursor lesions. These biomarkers would be used to identify individuals who are at high risk of developing PDAC and are candidates for early intervention.

New Onset Diabetes Cohort Sought to Unravel Complexities of Pancreatic Cancer Development
The National Cancer Institute is leading a project to create a cohort of people who are newly diagnosed with diabetes in the hopes that this group, who are at increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer, provide the clues in their blood and tissues to unravel some of the unknowns about this highly fatal cancer. The New Onset Diabetes Study (NOD) will include 10,000 people ages 50 to 85...
