The Florida Pancreas Collaborative Next-Generation Biobank: Reducing Health Disparities and Improving Survival for Pancreatic Cancer
The goal of the collaborative is to create a state-wide biobank to conduct basic, clinical, population-based, and translational PC health disparities research.
The goal of this study is to create a comprehensive state-wide biobank to conduct PC research that will impact several racial/ethnic groups. Our secondary goal will be to utilize the biobank to evaluate for the first time cachexia in the context of PC racial disparities. We propose: Aim 1: To prospectively build a robust next-generation biobank, that contains viable tissues, biofluids, medical images, and clinical and laboratory data, all from a racial/ethnically diverse cohort of PC patients. Aim 2: To test the central hypothesis that cancer cachexia may underlie racial disparities in AA compared to NHW and Hispanic PC patients.
