The Radiation Oncology Institute (ROI) has selected David J. Sher, MD, MPH, an associate professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Texas—Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, and Anand Shah, MD, MPH, a post-doctoral residency fellow in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Columbia University Medical Center in New York to receive grants for their projects to examine the comparative value of radiation therapy (RT), in response to ROI’s Request for Proposals (RFP) issued earlier this year. Sher’s project is titled "Comparative value of transoral surgery and radiation for oropharynx cancer," and Shah’s project is titled "Economic evaluation of SBRT versus surgery for stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)."
