The lack of well-validated and widely accepted cell lines derived from intestinal carcinoid and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) is a significant barrier for research and development of new therapies. The Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation therefore wishes to stimulate a concerted effort to create a “collection” of well-characterized cell lines that faithfully replicate tumor characteristics and genetics. The Foundation has partnered with the Rare Cancer Research Foundation (RCRF), a foundation dedicated to curing rare cancers through strategic investments and innovative collaborations, and the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), the world’s largest non-profit cell line repository, to establish a Neuroendocrine Tumor Cell Line collection in their catalog. This challenge requires written documentation, detailed description of each cell line, and sample delivery.
