<strong>The PACYFIC study group</strong>
Our study group has been founded to coordinate different research projects concerning pancreatic cysts. Every principal investigator of the PACYFIC study automatically becomes a member of the study group. In case of future side studies, each member will again be asked for permission to use data and tissue samples.
The study group is composed of;
1. A steering committee (coordinating and leading investigators)
2. General contributors (other collaborating parties)
3. Participants (principal investigators of participating centers)
The study group has formulated a consortium agreement on publication rules and data ownership. To download the consortium agreement, please click <a href=”https://www.pacyfic.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Consortium-Agreement.pdf”>here</a>.
<strong>European Study Group on Cystic Tumours of the Pancreas</strong>
