American Pancreatic Association

The American Pancreatic Association is a membership organization for physicians and researchers interested in diseases of the exocrine pancreas. Our mission is to foster clinical and basic science research needed to cure diseases of the pancreas. We strive to continue advancing the field of research, while training the next generation of researchers devoted to finding a cure for these deadly diseases.

Australasian Pancreatic Club

The Australasian Pancreatic Club (APC) was established in 2002 to provide a forum for clinicians and scientists with an interest in clinical and basic research into diseases of the exocrine pancreas. The annual meetings of the APC allow a unique opportunity for pancreatologists to discuss current and future research directions in pancreatic pathobiology and to initiate collaborations with research groups in the region.

European Pancreatic Club

The European Pancreatic Club (EPC) is a non-profit, international scientific organization dedicated to the study of the pancreas. EPC was founded in 1965, with the idea to bring together basic scientists and clinicians in an informal atmosphere to promote friendship and research communication between them. Therefore, EPC has provided a platform for pancreatologists for five decades. EPC has strong connections with various European National Pancreatic Societies (from 22 countries).

International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association

IHPBA is a non-profit organization which was created with the vision to devote itself to relieve world wide human suffering caused by Hepato Pancreato Biliary (HPB) disorders by improving education, training, innovation, research and patient care.

Japanese Pancreas Society

The Japanese Pancreas Society is the largest of the regional pancreas interest groups with several thousand members. The Society holds annual meetings and is active in supporting research into the pancreas.

Korean Pancreatobiliary Association

KPBA was founded in 1990 only as an ERCP study meeting. We saw the first ERCP conference in January of 1991 and the Korean pancreatobiliary study group took off in March of 1995. It became a full-blown academic association known today as KPBA in April of 2007.


The Pancreas Knowledge Base or “Pancreapedia” is designed to be an open access, one-stop information repository for the exocrine pancreas whose purpose is to expedite research on the pancreas. It contains the features of a reference book, methods book, cellular atlas and directory all integrated into a single searchable site with links between sections and to external resources such as PubMed and NCBI.
