Professor John Neoptolemos from the Department of Molecular and Clinical Cancer Medicine has been given a prestigious life time achievement award by the European Pancreatic Club, one the most established and influential pancreas research organisations in the world.
The award, which was presented at the 45th annual meeting in Zurich, is given to leaders in the field of pancreatic research who have over a lifetime significantly improved care for patients with pancreatic disease.
Accepting his award, Professor Neoptolemos said: “I am delighted to receive this Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be a permanent reminder of the great success of Liverpool in leading the way on pancreas cancer and pancreatitis.
“As well as a personal honour, this is a great honour for Liverpool and especially to the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and the University of Liverpool that have each shown a huge commitment to the establishment of a World Class Pancreas Clinical Service and Research Group.
“It is tribute to hundreds of medical and health care staff and scientists that are in the front line of delivering the best possible care to pancreas sufferers and the outstanding science that is paving the way to do this even better.”
Professor John Neoptolemos is The Owen and Ellen Evans Chair of Surgery and Department of Molecular and Clinical Cancer Medicine at the University of Liverpool and Honorary Consultant Surgeon at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
He was the original Scientific Lead for the NIHR Liverpool Pancreas Biomedical Research Unit and is the Director of the Liverpool Clinical Trials Unit which includes the Cancer Research UK Liverpool CTU and as part of the CRUK Centre, received the Freedom of the City of Liverpool in 2012.
His research has led to major breakthroughs in care of acute and chronic pancreatitis and has directly led to improved outcomes for patients with pancreatic cancer.
