Clinical Trials
Clinical trials provide crucial opportunities for patients to access innovative treatments and contribute to advancing medical knowledge in neuroendocrine cancer research.

Biobanking
Biobanking aims to enhance the understanding, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of various illnesses, including rare conditions such as neuroendocrine cancer. It involves collecting and storing surplus tissue (e.g., from surgeries or biopsies) or blood samples, which can be used for ongoing or future research endeavours.

Organ and Body Donation
We are occasionally asked whether it is still possible to donate your body to science – and yes you can.

The same organisation that regulates body donation also regulates and supplies advice and information on organ and tissue donation.

Non-Clinical Research
Every year in the UK, the National Cancer Experience Survey collects information about the care and treatment experiences of cancer patients. Its purpose is to monitor standards, improve services, and enhance outcomes for those diagnosed and undergoing treatment.
