We are the leading non-profit organization to support neuroendocrine tumor (NET) research. Our mission is to accelerate scientific discovery that will help create new and more effective therapies for NETs. Each year we seek and fund the most promising basic, translational and clinical research proposals, with potential to change our understanding of NETs and to accelerate the development of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for our patients. Our outstanding Board of Scientific Advisors, comprised of highly respected leaders in the field, is deeply committed to driving the process to identify and fund projects that have the most potential.
We have a strong commitment to promoting collaboration and resource sharing amongst our funded researchers and the community, both of which are evident during our Annual Research Symposium, where Who’s Who in NET research is presenting or attending. We aggressively seek to fund research that breaks barriers and opens new frontiers, and we tirelessly work to create a more diversified and groundbreaking research portfolio. Our mission is to one day have a cure for carcinoid, pancreatic, and other related neuroendocrine cancers.
