We are pleased to announce the 2019 round of the UKINETS and NET Patient Foundation research grant in support of NET research. This is open to basic science, clinical and translational researchers from investigators in the UK and Ireland. Applicants must be UKINETS members. Funds supporting this year’s grant have been raised by the NET Patient Foundation. The aim of the grant is to provide pump-priming funds to support 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.
