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.
The ROI currently has an active RFP for research on the topic of Personalized Radiation Therapy. The deadline to submit letters of intent has passed, and only those applicants invited to submit full proposals can do so 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. See the complete Request for Proposals for more details on this funding opportunity.

- Leveraging Big Data to Optimize Quality Assurance and Patient Care Improvement Initiatives
- Safety and Quality: IMRT Treatment Delivery Accuracy
- Best Practices for Toxicity Management in Radiation Oncology
- Examination of the Comparative Value of Radiation Therapy
