Florida Pancreas Collaborative Next Generation Biobank


Brief description of study

The goal of this study is to partner with individuals known or suspected to have pancreatic cancer to build a biobank dedicated to minimizing disparities and personalizing care for individuals affected by pancreatic cancer. A biobank is a resource that involves collection, processing and storage of blood, other bodily fluids, and tissue.

Detailed Study Description

Doctors, researchers, and patient advocates from numerous institutions throughout the state of Florida have formed a partnership known as the Florida Pancreas Collaborative. The goals of the Florida Pancreas Collaborative team are to find better ways to diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer and improve quality of life. Recent research suggests that pancreatic cancer affects people of various racial and ethnic groups differently, with some groups having more aggressive disease and a poorer prognosis than other groups.

In this research study, the investigators want to partner with individuals known or suspected to have pancreatic cancer to build a 'biobank' dedicated to minimizing disparities and personalizing care for individuals affected by pancreatic cancer. A biobank is a valuable resource that involves collection, processing, and storage of blood, other bodily fluids, and tissue (obtained during biopsy or surgery) to improve the investigator's understanding of health and disease. When combined with information and medical images obtained through routine care, the investigators will be able to investigate biological processes that may underlie differences and poor outcomes and target them with more effective therapeutic strategies tailored to the individual.
