Smashing success on December 20, 2023 at the Inaugural ACPMP Research Think Tank led by Dr. Andreana Holowatyj and hosted at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center .

ACPMP and Dr. Holowatyj, our Scientific Advisory Board Chair, brought together some of the best minds in appendix cancer and related disciplines to collectively identify research priorities and accelerate progress in advancing treatments for appendix cancer.

We are grateful for Dr. Holowatyj's inspired leadership and to all of the participants for their generosity of time, expertise, and deep commitment to scientific advances on behalf of appendix cancer patients.
