Dubi Fishel Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research

Dubi Fishel

The Dubi Fishel Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research was established in 2020 to honor the memory of ICRF Board Member, Dubi Fishel, who lost his battle with cancer on Yom Kippur last year.

Lina Jaber, PhD

The fund supports the research of ICRF Postdoctoral Fellowship grantee Professor Lina Jaber of Hebrew University, who is investigating early detection of pancreatic cancer.  Last year, the fund reached its goal of $33,000, covering the first year of Professor Jaber’s three-year grant.

The campaign, which is chaired by family and friends, will run again from November 1 until December 31, 2023 with the goal of raising $33,000 for the second year of the grant.    

A beloved member of the Chicago community, Dubi was born in Tel Aviv.  He served in the Israel Defense Forces and was active in the Six-Day War, the Yom Kippur War, and the Lebanon War. He was no stranger to fighting battles. Dubi’s final mission was to share his journey with pancreatic cancer and generate support for ICRF’s mission to fund cutting-edge cancer research in Israel.

May his memory be a blessing.
