To the organizing commitee..."I just wanted to send you my profound thanks for what I think is the world's premier pancreatic research meeting. I got more out of these past few days in terms of advancing my research than I have at 10 consecutive DDWs. I feel rejuvenated and inspired."

What is PancreasFest?
PancreasFest is an annual meeting of pancreas physicians and translational researchers who convene during the last week of July to find new ways of working together to improve patient care.
PancreasFest is an umbrella meeting that supports multiple smaller meetings with very focused goals. These include education programs, discussion sessions for new ideas, learning from other disciplines, investigator meetings, and efforts to help young investigators get started exporing their own ideas. PancreasFest is a meeting with a pragmatic purpose - multicenter research.
