NANETS Congratulates the 2015 Young Investigator and Clinical Investigator Scholarship Recipients

Developing the next generation of clinicians and researchers in the field of Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) is an important objective of the NANETS organization. This grant program offers a platform to highlight and financially support the NET research being done by junior investigators in the field. Our leadership team wants to congratulate our 2015 award recipients, Arvind Dasari, MD and Bryson Katona, MD, PhD. We also want to acknowledge and express our appreciation to IPSEN Biopharmaceuticals and Novartis Oncology for their continued support and commitment to assist NANETS in fulfilling our mission. Without our corporate partners, these important research grants would not be possible.

Below is a brief description of each awardee and their project.

The NCIS award focuses on supporting a clinical project as well as the investigator's potential to make future clinical contributions to the neuroendocrine tumor field. Dr. Dasari is an ideal candidate and his research proposal and objectives show great potential. This award is in honor of Edda Gomez-Panzani, MD for her dedication and work on behalf of patients living with neuroendocrine tumors.
