Welcome to The Japan Pancreatic Cancer Research Consortium (JaPAN).

The JaPAN is a multidisciplinary consortium aiming to elucidate environmental and genetic risk factors for pancreatic cancer. Its ongoing activity is focused on identifying novel genetic risk loci associated with pancreatic cancer susceptibility in the Japanese population through a meta-analysis of all genome-wide associations studies conducted in Japan, as well as performing post-GWAS fine-mapping and functional characterizations.
