New ROI Grant Opportunity Focuses on Personalized RT

The ROI is seeking proposals for research on how to personalize radiation therapy within its priority topic areas of communication, safety and quality, toxicity management, comparative effectiveness and value. Up to $300,000 in new grants will be awarded in the spring of 2019 to advance research that will help improve patient outcomes by tailoring their care to their individual tumor characteristics, and personal genetic profile, so that they can receive more targeted and effective treatments, while minimizing side effects.

The ROI selected the topic of Personalized Radiation Therapy because it is timely, and could encourage many innovative ideas in a wide variety of research areas. All of cancer care is moving away from the “one-size-fits-all” approach to treatment, and much more research is required to realize the potential of personalized radiation therapy.  

Interested investigators should submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) by December 14, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. The LOI is composed of a 500-word technical abstract that includes a description of the study question and research plan, a 250-word statement of relevance describing how the research applies to the ROI’s priority topic areas, and the principal investigator’s biosketch. Qualified applicants with promising project ideas will be invited to submit full proposals by March 1, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. A typical budget for a project is expected to be limited to $50,000. However, larger budgets will be considered with the firm limit that costs may not exceed $150,000. 

All application materials must be submitted through the ROI’s portal on proposalCENTRAL. More information about how to apply can be found on the Funding Opportunities section of the ROI website.

The ROI is excited to see many wonderful and creative ideas for new research projects that will help unlock the promise of personalizing radiation therapy to transform practice and improve outcomes for patients.
