EUROPAC, the European Registry of Hereditary Pancreatic Diseases was established in 1997 by a collaboration of pancreas surgeons from Liverpool, UK.

The study is supported by grants from Cancer Research UK, The European Union and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Patients who have a family history of pancreatic cancer or pancreatitis may be eligible to join the study, Referrals are made via genetic counsellors, GPs, other Consultants or directly via email (see website).

The current research team based in Liverpool includes Sara Harrison (Data Manager) and James Nicholson (Clinical Research Fellow).
