Welcome to the Third Scandinavian Baltic Pancreas Symposium
The Scandinavian Baltic Pancreatic Club Forum of Excellence is a forum for physicians from the Scandinavian and Baltic countries with specific scientific and clinical knowledge on pancreatic diseases. The forum was established in 2012 with the purpose to develop a scientific working group across borders, improving the understanding of the complex mechanisms underlying chronic pancreatitis. The specialists in the working group comes from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Russia, representing highly scientifically active centers in the different countries. In 2016, the forum established a prospective database for patients with chronic pancreatitis, which by now is one of the largest prospective databases on this patient population in the world. Several highly ranked and already widely cited publications originate from this initiative.
The symposium is hosted by Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. Current topics in pancreatic diseases will be discussed by participants and leading experts in the field of pancreatology.
Sincerely, J.-Matthias Löhr, Professor and Miroslav Vujasinovic, MD PhD, Associate Professor
