Welcome

The Mission of the Pancreas Club, since its founding in 1966, is to promote the interchange of ideas between pancreatologists throughout the world and to maintain an informal “club” atmosphere. Thus there are no formal manuscript submissions and we encourage presentation and submission of your best ideas for our annual meeting held the Saturday and Sunday of Digestive Disease Week.

The Pancreas Club Official Graphic
There were seven imprints made by Wirsung from a copper plate he engraved in 1642. The seven imprints are archived in several institutions. The one depicted below is in the University of Gottingen and was photographed for us by Professor Doctor Heinz Becker, Chief of Surgery. For more information regarding this interesting story see – Howard JM, et al., J Am Coll Surg 1998; 187 201-211.
