Thank you to Novartis for supporting the NANETS Young Investigator Award. 

This grant is meant to encourage scientists at the end of their fellowship or beginning of their faculty appointment to pursue basic and/or translational research focused on neuroendocrine tumors. The investigator/mentor relationship is an important component to all NANETS awards. NANETS strongly believes that the establishment of a mentorship plan is imperative to progress as a scientist and is the foundation of a successful NET career.
