NET CONNECT has summarised highlights from the recent ENETS 2019 meeting for you. Bio-markers in NENs by Dr Kira Oleinikov, Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center, Israel

Dr Kira Oleinikov, MD Senior physician, Neuroendocrine Tumor Unit and ENETS Center of Excellence, Endocrinology Department, Division of Medicine, Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel. Following an initial training in molecular biology, Dr Kira Oleinikov successfully completed an internal medicine and endocrinology specialization in 2017. In August 2018, Kira joined the Neuroendocrine Tumor Unit & ENETS Center of Excellence team at Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in Jerusalem, one of the major clinical and research units in NETs internationally, as a full-consultant position. Kira is actively involved in all programs running at the Hadassah NET unit, including clinical programs (seeing NET patients in the clinic/departments or as part of the regular patient follow-up/recruitment inside clinical trials); NET laboratory research; teaching programs (both medical and post-graduate students at the Hadassah Faculty of Medicine); NET patient's advocacy group activities, and more. Kira is a member of the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) and the Israeli Endocrine Society. Kira's sharp intellectual abilities driven her to a variety of academic achievements during her fellowship in molecular biology at the Hebrew University. She is continuously involved in the diagnostic and the therapeutic decision-making process of NET patients with a variety of tumors, and established herself already as a highly prepared clinician in the field. Nowadays, Kira's main research interest is focused on the evaluation of different treatment approaches to pancreatic NETs, as well as in developing new biomarkers for lung carcinoids. Additionally, she spends a significant part of her time in the unit basic research laboratory, aiming to examine the possible anti-tumorigenic effect of different drug combinations in a NET liver metastasis mice model, in an attempt to overcome drug-resistance. At a personal level, the combination of knowledge, tenacity, and good communications skills found in Kira is truly unique, making her an excellent partner for the COR2E program in NETs.
