NANETS is committed to research related to cancerous tumors found in the nueroendocrine system.

NANETS' Research Committee seeks abstract submissions from medical researchers at institutions all over North America and around the world. Abstracts are thoroughly reviewed by NANET's Research Committee of medical doctors and PhD researchers, and selected to be shown in poster sessions and as oral abstract presentations at NANETS' annual NET symposium, held each fall. Abstracts are published in a comprehensive guide featuring the latest in NET research, archived on NANETS' website, as well as a large number being published in the medical journal Pancreas.

Investigators may submit abstracts that have been presented at other scientific meetings and/or published in scientific journals since October 1.
