BTSI Grant

NANETS congratulates Renata Jaskula-Sztul, PhD, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, School of Medicine, as the NANETS 2018 Basic/Translational Science Investigator (BTSI) Award recipient.

Dr. Jaskula-Sztul received this grant for her proposal, Novel Antibody-Drug Conjugate (ADC) for Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (PanNET) Targeted Therapy. She has published more than 40 papers and, as a co-investigator, she has received funding for five research grants on targeted drug delivery to neuroendocrine tumors.

Dr. Jaskula-Sztul’s current project on testing antibody-drug conjugates as a potential drug for NET will generate new and exciting information that will form the foundation for future grants.

The Basic/Translational Science Investigator (BTSI) Grant is funded by the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation (NETRF). The $100,000 BTSI Grant is administered over the course of two years. The NANETS Research Committee establishes the award criteria, reviews process, and independently selects the recipient.
