2015 NCIS Recipient - Arvind Dasari, MD

The NCIS award focuses on supporting a clinical project as well as the investigator's potential to make future clinical contributions to the neuroendocrine tumor field.  Dr. Dasari is an ideal candidate and his research proposal and objectives show great potential.  This award is in honor of Edda Gomez-Panzani, MD for her dedication and work on behalf of patients living with neuroendocrine tumors.

2015 Young Investigator Grant Recipient - Bryson William Katona, MD, PhD

NANETS congratulates  Bryson William Katona as the 2015 Young Investigator grant recipient for his work on ER stress and the unfolded protein response in neuroendocrine tumor proliferation.

2013 NCIS Recipient- Katherine VanLoon, MD, MPH

NANETS congratulates NCIS recipient Katherine VanLoon, MD, MPH. She plans to use the robust database available from the NCCN’s multi-institutional Neuroendocrine Tumor Outcomes Project to report recurrence rates, time to tumor recurrence, and survival for patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) who undergo surgical resection with curative intent. 

2013 Young Investigator Recipient - Hala Elnakat Thomas, PhD

NANETS congratulates Hala Elnakat Thomas as the 2013 Young Investigator Grant Recipient for her work on mTOR inhibition in the treatment of pNETs.

2010 Young Investigator Recipient, Mei Dong, MD, PhD

Congratulations to Mei Dong, MD, PhD.  On behalf of The North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (NANETS) it is a pleasure to announce the selection of Mei Dong, MD, PhD as the recipient of one of the 2010 Young Investigator awards in the amount of $50,000.

2010 Early Career Development Award Recipient, Haggi Mazeh, MD

Congratulations to Haggi Mazeh, MD! His research proposal "The Role of Notch 1, 2 and 3 in Neuroendocrine Tumors” will address the need for development of other forms of therapy for NET cancers by characterizing the roles of the Notch isoforms in regulating NE cancer cell growth and hormone secretion.

2009 Young Investigator Recipient - Hans Ghayee, DO

Congratulations to Dr. Hans Ghayee! His research proposal "mTOR Inhibitors Effect on Growth & Catecholalmine Synthesis of Human Pheochromocytoma Cells" is a distinctive concept of developing an new pheochromocytoma cell line and of testing new agents in that cell line which has the potential of being highly relevant to the field.
