Grant Applications Go to Board of Scientific Advisors

NETRF's Board of Scientific Advisors and external reviewers will begin reading and ranking the 2019 requests for research funding.

Wide Range of Requests for NET Research Funding Received

Researchers from 20 different states across the U.S and 19 countries worldwide, responded to the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation’s 2019 call for grant applications.

“We had a wonderful global response to the call for applications this year and we are looking forward to identifying the best proposals to recommend for funding. We know that these studies provide our best chances to advance our understanding of NETs in pursuit of improved treatments,” said John Kanki, PhD, NETRF Director of Research.

The Foundation offers four different grant programs offering research funding up to $1.2 million for up to four years. The 2019 grant cycle includes a new grant for early career researchers, called the Mentored Award, which aims to recruit more young researchers to the neuroendocrine cancer field.

As a next step, the short preliminary applications will be evaluated by NETRF’s Board of Scientific Advisors and external reviewers. A portion of the respondents will then be invited to submit full, comprehensive proposals for funding consideration. Following scientific review, the NETRF Board of Directors will confirm and approve the final funding recommendations.
