2017 NET Research Grant – Call For Applications
CNETS Canada is committed to improving the quality of life and survival for NET patients across Canada. To deliver on this vision, CNETS Canada has been supporting the clinical and fundamental research that improves the diagnosis and treatment of NET as well as examines the causes for these cancers since 2010. In 2016, CNETS Canada introduced a new Research Funding Framework and this is the second consecutive year of the new research grant program.
The NET patient community has continually demonstrated a strong commitment to supporting CNETS Canada’s fundraising efforts. Our goal is to leverage this commitment by encouraging local NET patients to direct their fundraising efforts towards specific high-priority projects. The proceeds are pooled with contributions from CNETS Canada and NET Centres to fund select research initiatives. By championing causes that will have a direct and meaningful impact on their own lives and the lives of other NET patients, we believe this approach will be highly inspirational and motivational. It will also enable us fund a greater number of research initiatives, that are more ambitious.
CNETS Canada is pleased to announce the 2017 Neuroendocrine Tumour Research Grant to provide grant-in-aid for two projects up to a maximum of $40,000 per project. The research focus for this grant announcement was determined through a widespread consultation with the NET patient community, and the input from CNETS Canada’s Scientific and Medical Advisory Board.
Relevance of the application to the focused area of Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) research.
