The National Pancreas Foundation (NPF) was founded in 1997. Since that time NPF has made it our mission to significantly influence the physician and pancreatic research community and provide much needed education and resources to patients and their families who are afflicted by pancreatic disease.
NPF advocates for increased research funding for diseases of the pancreas from both the public and private sectors. NPF works with government, for-profit and non-profit organizations as well as the biopharmaceutical industry to improve the level of awareness, interest and investment in research for pancreas disease.
NPF supports patients through many programs including its Animated Pancreas Patient, NPF Centers of Excellence, Chapters and Patient Support Community.
NPF supports physicians and the medical community through offering such as annual Research Grants, Fellows Symposium and Medical Education.
