In a new collaboration with The Education and Research Foundation for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (ERF), NETRF is proud to support an inaugural NETS Nuclear Medicine Research Grant. This grant was made possible by the generous support of the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation. The grant is designed to help a basic or clinical scientist in the early stages of his or her career conduct novel and innovative research focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors. The grant will provide $50,000 to ERF for a one-year award.
“Over the past decade, there has been great progress worldwide in the research and use of molecular imaging and nuclear medicine for the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors,” said Josh Mailman, president of the NorCal CarciNET Community and member of the ERF Board of Directors.
“Our collaboration with ERF is important, as it is vital to bring young investigators focused on nuclear medicine into the search for better imaging and treatments for neuroendocrine tumor patients, helping extend the quantity and quality of their lives,” said Ron Hollander, NETRF Executive Director.
