Searching for the best and brightest
We have a very proactive approach to finding and retaining talent. We develop and nurture relationships with our awardees, and support them throughout the life of the grant, and beyond. Investigators that have shown excellent progress with their projects may be invited back to submit additional proposals.
Funding promising research
We support investigators whose work will provide insights into the causes of NETs and/or lead to improved treatment for patients who live with these cancers. We look for novel ideas, and/or proposals that leverage insights from related cancers. We encourage collaborations between investigators with expertise in different fields and we are interested in proposals from multidisciplinary, multi-institutional groups comprised of basic scientists and clinicians as well as experts in bioinformatics, chemistry, bio-nanotechnology, or other relevant disciplines. Proposals that cover promising and potentially transferable mechanisms and/or technologies that have been applied successfully to other areas of cancer research are highly desirable and are evaluated based on their level of applicability to NETs. Our goal is to fund projects with the potential to expand in scope and attract additional support from us, as well as other funding bodies.
Evaluation of submitted proposals
We employ a two-step scientific review process: the first step is the submission of a Competitive Letter of Intent (LOI) to help identify projects with the greatest scientific potential.
Applicants whose LOIs are deemed most meritorious move to the second step and are invited to submit a full proposal.
Each year we invite applications under the programs shown below:
in the amount of $1,200,000 ($300K/year).
in the amount of $300,000 ($150K/year).
Pilot Project awards
at either $50,000 or $100,000/year.
