What is the EPC?

The European Pancreatic Club (EPC) is a non-profit, international scientific organization dedicated to the study of the pancreas.

The EPC was founded in 1965, with the aim of bringing together basic scientists and clinicians in an informal atmosphere to promote friendship and research collaboration. Since then, the EPC has grown to become a major professional platform with several hundred members that has supported and served pancreatologists in Europe for more than 50 years.
