NCI Summit on Carcinoids and Neuroendocrine Tumors

Wednesday, September 12, 2007 - Thursday, September 13, 2007
Rockville, MD

The goals of this summit were to assess the current status of neuroendocrine tumor biology, diagnosis, and treatment and to develop a comprehensive set of recommendations that address the major barriers to early diagnosis and treatment. There are plans to submit a synopsis of this summit and the list of recommendations for publication in a cancer journal and to members of the U.S. Congress. It was anticipated that this summit would increase general awareness of this disease, stimulate scientific interest in this under-represented area, and potentially open up new avenues of funding.
