We are pleased to announce a new collaboration with the North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (NANETS). NETRF is funding a Basic/Translational Science Investigator Award (BTSI), made possible through the generous support of the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation. “This is an exciting and important new partnership to encourage outstanding young researchers to make a career commitment to neuroendocrine research that can improve the lives and prospects of NET patients everywhere,” said Ron Hollander, NETRF Executive Director.
The purpose of this award is to encourage scientists at the end of their fellowship or beginning of their faculty appointment to pursue basic and/or translational research focused on NETs. This is a two year award and will provide $50,000 in funding each year. Dr. Matthew H. Kulke, Chair of NANETS stated, “This is a welcome and significant step in the collaboration between our two organizations, and one on which we hope to continue building in the future.”
