In 2021, NANETS is pleased to offer two research grants to encourage young researchers and scientific clinicians to become NET specialists. The NANETS research grant submission portal opened May 1 and will accept submissions through July 2, 11:59 PM PDT. Interested applications can access the research grant submission portal here.
NANETS Clinical Investigator Scholarship (NCIS): The NCIS is a $100,000 scholarship awarded over a two-year period that 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.

NANETS Basic/Translational Science Investigator (BTSI): The BTSI is a $100,000 grant awarded over the period of two years to scientists at the end of their fellowship or in the beginning of their faculty appointments who are predominantly focused on lab-based, basic/translational research.
