Gianaris Pancreatic Cancer Symposium is Nov. 16

The Indiana University School of Medicine will host the Andrea Gianaris Pancreatic Cancer Symposium on Thursday, Nov. 16, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Walther Hall, room 203. The half-day symposium is free and provides 3.5 CME credit hours.

The symposium features the leading pancreatic surgeon in the country, Keith Lillemoe, MD, chief of surgery at Massachusetts General and the Harvard Medical School. He previously led the Department of Surgery at IU School of Medicine. Gabriela Chiorian, MD, is also returning to IU to present oncology advancements in the treatment of pancreatic cancer and the science driving new therapies. Dr. Chiorian is now a medical oncologist specializing in pancreatic cancer at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. The symposium also features a panel of IU pancreatic specialists who will discuss case studies and interact with attendees.

IU School of Medicine faculty generated $1.13 million in pancreatic cancer research funding in 2016 from the National Cancer Institute. They perform 3,000 pancreatic procedures annually, host the only high-risk clinic in the country, and nationally are ranked #1 in diagnostic procedures and #2 in the number of surgeries for pancreatic cancer annually.

Dr. Peter Gianaris, a neurosurgeon with Goodman-Campbell, established the symposium in memory of his wife, Andrea, in 2012.
