The Abstract Process

NANETS is committed to furthering neuroendocrine tumor disease diagnosis, treatment and management through research and education. With over 15,000 new patients diagnosed with NETs each year, there is a continuing need to support NET research and advance the dissemination of vital research findings. NANETS' Multidisciplinary NET Medical Virtual Symposium represents an excellent opportunity to present research relevant to cutting edge topics in neuroendocrine tumor research. Medical researchers at institutions in North America and around the world are invited to submit abstracts for presentation. NANETS encourages abstract reporting on recent NET research and/or describing ongoing or current clinical trials with the intent of increasing awareness of these studies.

Investigators may submit abstracts that have been presented at other scientific meetings and/or published in scientific journals since October 1 of the prior year. Abstracts are reviewed and scored by NANETS’ Scientific Review & Research Committee of NET medical research experts, and selected to be shown in poster sessions or as oral abstract presentations at the NANETS Annual Multidisciplinary NET Medical Symposium, held each fall. Ten to twelve oral abstracts will be selected for presentation in two education sessions at Symposium.  

Categories for submission are:

    1. Basic Science
    2. Applied Basic Science
    3. Chemo/SSA/Biologics (Clinical)
    4. Nuclear Medicine/Interventional Radiology/Imaging (Clinical)
    5. Surgical/Applied Pathology (Clinical)
    6. Population Science
    7.  Other
    8. Trials in Progress

Case reports are not accepted.

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.

The submission period opens in early spring.
