On the 6th of September, PANCAIM had its first of three review meetings with the European Commission and appointed external experts to assess the progress of the project. The consortium members presented the progress and achievements of the first 1.5 years of the project, but also addressed challenges encountered, risks identified and mitigation strategies. Appointed external reviewers were satisfied with the progress and curious to learn more about the unique common datamodel which was developed specifically for PANCAIM’s multimodal approach 👏

The intense preparations for the review provided for a new momentum for the multidisciplinary European consortium and the work has picked up speed to reach the expected milestones and objectives of the next few months!

For a deeper view into the scientific activities in PANCAIM, check out the recent article published by PANCAIM researchers in the journal Cancers MDPI – “Setting the Research Agenda for Clinical Artificial Intelligence in Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Imaging” which provides a comprehensive review of the state of the art of artificialintelligence in PDAC and the need for improvements which will be made by PANCAIM.

Congrats to the authors – Henkjan Huisman, Megan Schuurmans, Natália Alves, Pierpaolo Vendittelli, John J. Hermans – and everyone who contributed!

We thank all partners for the good cooperation and are looking forward to the next few months of PANCAIM! 🙂
