Professor John Neoptolemos, The Owen and Ellen Evans Chair of Surgery and Clinical Lead for NICE Clinical Cancer Guidelines, has been elected as President ahead of EPC’s 48th Annual Scientific Meeting.
Of the appointment Professor Neoptolemos FMedSci., said: “I’m delighted and honoured to have been chosen to serve as President of the EPC. This is a massive privilege and I am looking forward to playing such a significant role in further promoting its members and the field of pancreatic research.
“The University leads on so many aspects of pancreas disease through basic and translational research, national and international clinical trials, large collaborative studies and guideline development.”
Wealth of expertise
Professor Gavin Brown, Pro-Vice Chancellor of the University of Liverpool, said: “Professor Neoptolemos’ global standing and wealth of expertise in pancreatic cancer as both a clinician and a researcher makes him the ideal choice for this appointment.”
