The North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (NANETS) welcomes abstracts for the 10th annual NANETS Symposium, which will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, on October 19-21, 2017. The deadline for abstract submissions is Monday, June 26, 2017. One of the key goals of NANETS is to provide a platform for highlighting neuroendocrine tumor research. We encourage abstracts 1) reporting on recent neuroendocrine tumor research, and 2) describing ongoing or current clinical trials with the intent of increasing awareness of these studies. Visit our website for more information and to submit.

It has been a little over a month since we established our new headquarters and staff in New York. I'm pleased to report it has been a productive transition which has allowed us to align our organization with many of our strategic goals.
