Purpose and Background Advances in technology are transforming the practice of radiation oncology. New radiotherapy techniques have the potential to increase personalization in cancer care, but much more research is needed to understand how they can be used safely and effectively to improve outcomes for patients. Threats such as cybersecurity that now can disrupt our ability to reliably treat patients will require novel, technical solutions. In support of this new era of radiotherapy, ROI is requesting proposals for research on new methods including but not limited to: FLASH radiotherapy Spatially fractionated radiation therapy (SFRT) including GRID and LATTICE Particle therapy Novel treatment delivery techniques such as personalized ultrafractionated stereotactic adaptive radiotherapy (PULSAR) Immuno-radiotherapy Technology to address disruptions in radiation care such as cybersecurity threats By supporting innovative investigators exploring the frontiers of radiotherapy, ROI will drive the field forward and help shape the future of radiation oncology.
