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.

ASTRO has a variety of other research initiatives, from surveys of its membership and the radiation oncology workforce to support for promising young researchers to educational projects in radiation physics and biology.
