NETRF funds $3.5 million in research to advance neuroendocrine tumor treatment

UCSF's Claire Mulvey, MD, has been awarded a Fellowship Award from the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation (NETRF) for her project "Trends in incidence and survival outcomes for lung NETs."  The Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation (NETRF), Boston, MA, today announced $3.5 million in neuroendocrine tumor (NET) research grants to fund 12 projects around the world in pursuit of more precise treatments for this uncommon cancer affecting an estimated 171,000 Americans.

Mulvey will quantify sociodemographic and geographic patterns of incidence and overall survival among those diagnosed with lung NETs in California from 1992–2017 to identify potential risk factors.
