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.
