Annual ROI Publication Award Nominations Now Open
In 2022, ROI will once again honor an early career investigator who is the lead author of a practice-changing manuscript with the annual Publication Award. Nominations are now open for the award, which recognizes excellence in radiation oncology research on one or more of the ROI’s priority topics: communication, safety and quality, toxicity management, comparative effectiveness and value. The winner will be featured at the ASTRO Annual Meeting in October and will receive a $5,000 grant to advance their research trajectory consistent with the mission of the ROI.
The deadline to submit nominations through the ROI portal on ProposalCentral is July 7, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. Nominations must include a copy of the article and a statement about the impact of the research on the field of radiation oncology, how the published results align with the ROI’s research agenda, and how the $5,000 grant would be used. Self-nominations are accepted.
The ROI Publication Award has become a sought-after honor among early career investigators in radiation oncology, providing recognition and financial support to help them further their research interests. For example, 2020 ROI Publication Award winner Robert Dess, MD
, of the University of Michigan presented “Prognostic and Predictive Performance of Routine Clinicopathologic Variables in 10,535 Men Enrolled on Randomized Phase III Trials in Localized Prostate Cancer,” at the 2021 ASTRO Annual Meeting. It was one of the top ten genitourinary abstracts of the year, and the grant that accompanied Dr. Dess’s Publication Award supported the statistical analysis of this data.
