The North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society was established in 2007 with the mission of furthering neuroendocrine tumor disease diagnosis, treatment and management. Since its inception, NANETS has remained dedicated to this mission through the provision of increased education and research opportunities. It is through research grants NANETS engages medical professionals in the early part of their careers to foster further exploration and advancement of NET diagnosis and treatment.

Since 2009, NANETS has awarded $1.5 million in research grants to 22 medical professionals. This year, NANETS is pleased to offer three research grants to support innovative research initiatives and encourage young researchers and scientific clinicians to become NET specialists.

NANETS Basic/Translational Science Investigator (BTSI)

The NANETS Basic/Translational Science Investigator (BTSI) is awarded to scientists at the end of their fellowship or in the beginning of their faculty appointment, who are predominantly focused on lab-based, basic/translational research. The BTSI is intended to encourage the scientific inquiry in the field of basic/translational science as it relates to NETs. Learn more and submit an application.

NANETS Clinical Investigator Scholarship (NCIS)

The NANETS Clinical Investigator Scholarship (NCIS) encourages clinicians at the end of their fellowship or beginning of their faculty appointment to pursue a clinical career focused on neuroendocrine tumors. The NCIS emphasizes both the professional development of the scientific clinician (whose time is primarily dedicated to patient care) and the potential of the project to directly impact NET patients. Learn more and submit an application.

NANETS Theranostics Investigator Grant (NTIG)

The NANETS Theranostics Investigator Grant (NTIG) encourages early career professionals to pursue research focused in theranostics and neuroendocrine tumors. This grant will further the exploration of theranostics and its potential to improve the diagnosis and management of neuroendocrine tumors. Given the recent and substantial advances in the area of nuclear theranostics in particular, there is an urgent need to support more of the high-quality research proposals that we receive in this field.  Learn more and submit an application.
