NEW BRUNSWICK, October 30, 2014 - The Canadian Cancer Society, in partnership with the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation and Craig's Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society, has announced a grant of $197,500 to support New Brunswick cancer research scientists exploring the development of a blood test to detect pancreatic cancer at an early stage.

"The survival rate for pancreatic cancer is only eight percent, so finding a way to detect it earlier could significantly improve outcomes for many patients," said Anne McTiernan-Gamble, CEO of the Canadian Cancer Society New Brunswick. "We're extremely pleased to partner with Craig's Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society and the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation in funding this exciting research, led by Drs. Stephen Lewis, Rodney Ouellette and Anirban Ghosh."
