We have made no such assessment.

The National Institute for Health Research is investing £6.5 million over five years to 2017 in the Liverpool Pancreas Biomedical Research Unit. This unit is working in partnership with industry and leading research institutions to develop new treatments and diagnostic strategies for pancreatic cancer, so advancements in science can lead to benefits for patients.
