Date:3/25/2011

ORLANDO, Fla. The American Association for Cancer Research is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2011 Caring for Carcinoid Foundation-AACR Grants for Carcinoid Tumor and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Research and the 2011 Raymond and Beverly Sackler AACR Fellowships for Ileal Carcinoid Tumor Research.

These grant-giving mechanisms, created in partnership with the Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) and the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Fund for the Arts and Sciences, will advance the understanding of neuroendocrine tumor biology, elucidate the mechanisms of currently available therapies, and identify new treatment targets for carcinoid and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.

"The AACR is pleased to announce the first winners of grants created in partnership with the Caring for Carcinoid Foundation and the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Fund for the Arts and Sciences, two outstanding organizations dedicated to accelerating progress against neuroendocrine tumors," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), CEO of the American Association for Cancer Research. "The scientists chosen by the Selection Committee to receive these grants are conducting exciting work that has the potential to lead to improved treatments for these cancers."

Caring for Carcinoid Foundation-AACR Grants for Carcinoid Tumor and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Research: These two-year grants of $250,000 ($125,000 per year) support junior and senior investigators as they develop and study new ideas and innovative approaches that have direct application and relevance to carcinoid tumors or pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.

  • Xianxin Hua, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor, Abramson Cancer Research Institute, Department of Cancer Biology, the University of Pennsylvania

Hua will develop novel modalities that will be useful for treating pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, by targeting the pathway that is regulated by menin, a tumor suppressor that is muta
