Grant success for Dr David Chan

Dr David Chan has been successful in securing five years funding from an NHMRC Investigator Grant to continue his innovative research into understanding the behaviour of NETs such as why some NETs behave aggressively and others do not.

His main research project is focusing on dual PET scans which are currently used in Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) to track disease but offer little data to guide interpretation. Dr Chan is working on developing a new method to convert dual PET into a number, describing both disease grade and the amount of tumour. 

This will make “virtual biopsies” with PET a reality – not just in NEN but other cancers such as prostate cancer as well.

We are so excited for Dr Chan and look forward to following his research over the next five years.
