Targeting Cancer Care


Continued research in radiation physics, cancer and radiation biology, health services and clinical trials advances the field of radiation oncology in many ways. In addition, survey research allows ASTRO to understand patterns and practices in the radiation oncology workforce and the needs of the ASTRO membership.

ASTRO’s commitment to research is evidenced in the grants distributed to early-career researchers, in the research ASTRO conducts with its members and with the full radiation oncology workforce, and in the publication of research in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology•Biology•Physics (Red Journal) and Practical Radiation Oncology (PRO) and in ASTRO’s Annual Meeting program.
