"The NANETS BTSI award has given me the opportunity to secure a faculty position at the University of Iowa. It really made a huge difference in my academic career," Dr. Ear remarked. "My research has been extremely fruitful because of the funding provided by this award."
As she continues to prepare her manuscripts, she expects that her papers will be published within the next year. Dr. Ear previously authored the Establishment and Characterization of Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumor Spheroids.

"I am extremely proud and honored to be a NANETS member. I have never had the opportunity to be part of such a supportive and collaborative society. I really appreciate the initiatives of NANETS' administrative and executive committees for organizing the Women in NETs and Research Grants webinars."

February 28, NANETS recognizes Rare Disease Day, a time to raise awareness amongst the public and medical professionals about the impact rare disease has on a patient's life.

Improving access to treatment and medical representation for individuals and families experiencing rare disease is important to acknowledge and to address. As the NANETS community knows, neuroendocrine cancer is a rare disease that affects 12,000 new patients each year and can often take years to diagnose.
