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 is currently accepting letters of intent (LOIs) for its Improving Diversity & Inclusion in Radiation Oncology RFP. The ROI will award grants in spring 2020 for innovative ideas to reduce disparities in patient care, increase participation of under-represented groups in clinical trials, and improve diversity in the radiation oncology workforce. Typical budgets should be limited to $50,000 but proposals up to $100,000 will be considered. LOIs are due on October 28, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. See details on criteria and eligibility in the complete request for proposals and apply on proposalCENTRAL.
