The Fund’s Involvement in Research

We have supported pancreatic cancer research from the inception of the charity. We do this in two distinct ways. Firstly, we support recruitment to key clinical trials, with awareness raising and via direct funding of patients’ expenses.
Secondly, we provide a patient and carer voice as research trials are established and as drug breakthroughs are made. The Elizabeth Coteman Fund is the only specialist pancreatic cancer charity to hold membership of the Cambridge Pancreatic Cancer Centre team and have access to the development of research programmes at the Centre.
