Funding Opportunities

  • The ROI invests in research to heighten the critical role of radiation oncology in the treatment of cancer. Requests for proposals (RFPs) are strategically developed to inspire research that is practical and has the potential to transform cancer management and the therapies that are offered to patients on a daily basis.

    Innovative Projects in Radiation Oncology

    The ROI's current funding opportunity is focused on topics identified as being important areas of need for radiation oncology by members of the field. The ROI asked attendees of the 2017 ASTRO Annual Meeting to answer the question: “How do we improve our ability to get radiation to the patients who need it?” Based on the responses, the ROI developed the Innovative Projects in Radiation Oncology request for proposals (RFP), which will give priority to projects that address the following areas.

    • Financial toxicity and cost – investigations of the financial toxicity associated with radiation therapy and the development of interventions to mitigate its effects and lower costs.
    • Access to treatment and support services – studies to understand disparities in access to radiation therapy and the development of solutions to address them.
    • Awareness, education and marketing – novel methods to inform patients and referring physicians about the benefits of radiation therapy.
    • Hypofractionation and SBRT – generation of evidence or development of programs that support their use.

    See the complete RFP for details on the purpose, award amount, selection criteria and how to apply.
