NET Patient Foundation Research Grant – apply now!


We are pleased to announce the launch of the third NET Patient Foundation research grant in support of NET research. This is open to both clinical and translational research from investigators in the UK and Ireland. Funds have been raised solely by the NET Patient Foundation, and applications are invited from UKINETS members holding substantive appointments. This aim of these grants are provide pump-priming funds supporting research projects aimed to improve outcomes for patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours. Ambitious projects that encourage collaborations between centres are encouraged. It is anticipated that these grants will lead on to more substantive grant funding and applicants are required to provide a clear development plan as part of the proposal. Proposals are welcome from researchers in all relevant fields of neuroendocrine tumour research including all GEP tumours, bronchial and rectal NETs, adrenal and medullary thyroid cancers. However, small cell cancer of lung is beyond the remit of this funding stream. The funds are to be used to cover research costs but not travel expenses, salaries or major equipment.
