Thanks to private funding, 100% of every dollar donated to The Lustgarten Foundation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.

The Lustgarten Foundation Research Program Team

The only way to provide hope for patients and their families and to reach our ultimate goal of finding a cure for pancreatic cancer is through scientific research.  The Lustgarten Foundation has assembled a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) comprised of leading scientists and clinicians in the field of cancer research and then adopted a Focused Research Strategy and a Research Map to identify critical areas of research that when successfully completed, will bring us more quickly to a cure.  Our Research Map encompasses the key areas of early detection and risk factors, improvements in drug delivery, new drug development, and clinical trials.  The Foundation invites leading scientists to design a research proposal that addresses one of these key areas of research.  The competitive grants are reviewed by our SAB and then the best proposals receive funding.  Current SAB members are:
