Dr. James Panagis
I am honored and very pleased to join the NET Research Foundation Board. My family has experienced first-hand the support and assistance of NETRF. I hope that my background as a physician and as a research program manager will allow me to assist NETRF in moving forward towards new treatments and possible cures, not only for someone very dear to me, but also for all of the individuals and their families who are currently dealing with these cancers.
