There are a number of sites and resources for patients and families faced with a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Below are a few that provide information, forums, clinical trials, and opportunities to connect with others who have similar questions and share the same concerns.

NCI has a broad array of programs that support clinical research, including programs that facilitate the development of new interventions, from the initial creation of candidate drugs in the lab to final testing in late-stage clinical trials.
