NETRF reports progress in the development of neuroendocrine tumor cell lines to help eliminate a decades-old obstacle in laboratory research. To stimulate progress in NET cell lines, NETRF established a Cell Line Prize, funded cell line research, and launched a collaboration with a nationally known research institute. Each of these initiatives has succeeded in establishing NET cell lines.
NETRF welcomes five new members to its Board of Scientific Advisors, a volunteer council of highly distinguished medical and research leaders who share NETRF’s commitment to advancing the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine cancer.
A NETRF-funded clinical trial looks at a cancer vaccine called SurVaxM in neuroendocrine cancer to help slow or stop the spread of neuroendocrine tumors.
