The fourteenth annual NETRF Research Symposium successfully concluded last month with over 300 registered virtual attendees participating from around the globe for the second year in a row. The meeting included nearly 60 talks and posters representing the cutting edge of NET research where investigators reported their latest data and discoveries to share and discuss with colleagues. This year posters were available for viewing over the three days preceding the two-day meeting, resulting in over 300 poster views and ample time for discussions. Over 95% of registrants attended the two-days of talks and live discussions while the recorded talks and posters were viewed by over 100 more attendees over the following week.
