The North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (NANETS) was established in 2007 with the mission of furthering neuroendocrine tumor disease diagnosis, treatment and management. Since inception, NANETS has remained dedicated to this mission through the provision of increased education and research opportunities. 

NANETS remains committed to connecting the pioneers in the NET field to the young scientific minds that will make up the next generation of NET experts. It is through research that NANETS engages medical professionals in the early part of their careers to foster the further exploration and advancement of the NET diagnosis and treatment.

This year, NANETS is offering a record four research grants: the Basic/Translational Science Investigator (BTSI), the NANETS Clinical Investigator Scholarship (NCIS), the NANETS Theragnostics Investigator Grant (NTIG) and the NANETS Young Investigator Award (YI). These grants support innovative research initiatives and encourage young researchers and scientific clinicians to become NET specialists.

Purpose

The purpose of the NANETS NCIS, BTSI, NTIG, or YI Award is to encourage clinicians (NCIS) or scientists (BTSI, NTIG, YI) at the end of their fellowship who have secured a faculty appointment or clinicians (NCIS) or scientists (BTSI, NTIG, YI) beginning their faculty appointment to pursue research focused on neuroendocrine tumors.

NANETS Basic/Translational Science Investigator (BTSI)

The BTSI is awarded to a scientist in the beginning of their faculty appointment who is 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 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 Theragnostics Investigator Grant (NTIG)

This NANETS Theragnostics Investigator Grant (NTIG) is intended to push forward the boundaries of molecularly targeted radionuclide therapy and diagnostics for patients with neuroendocrine tumors. This two-year award is intended for medical professionals with a faculty appointment who have illustrated a commitment to advancing the use of theragnostics in the diagnosis and treatment of NETs. Learn more and submit an application.

Young Investigator Award (YI)

The NANETS Young Investigator Award 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. Learn more and submit an application.
