The Roi Juan A. Del Regato Fund

  • Founded in 1974, the ROI Juan A. del Regato Fund works to foster a sense of global unity and direction in radiation oncology and to sustain this directive well into the second century of the discipline. The Fund carries on in the spirit of its founder, seeking to improve communication and education in radiation oncology worldwide, as well as to encourage historical works on the field.

    From 1977–2008, the Fund sponsored annual lectures by distinguished members of the field from around the world. With the generous cooperation of host institutions, the lectures covered diverse topics, but each reflected the twin aspirations of radiation oncology: the development of the science of the field and the enhancement of the art of healing. Lecturers received the Fund’s medal, honoring both the occasion of the address and their lifetime contribution to the field.

    Today, the Fund supports eContouring and journal club webinars for radiation oncology residents to honor Dr. del Regato’s legacy and dedication to training physicians entering the field. The webinars are made possible through an educational partnership with ASTRO. The Fund is also committed to preserving the works of Dr. del Regato and other founders of radiation oncology and making them accessible to all with an interest in the history of this revolutionizing cancer treatment and cure.
