The College and TROG regularly collaborate to promote world-class research involving radiation therapy to improve the quality of life of people affected by cancer. Together, we are pleased to announce the inaugural RANZCR-TROG Research Grant.
This AU$20,000 grant will support a trainee or Fellow to undertake a TROG Category D project and can be used to supplement an existing salary from an institution or for additional research project support such as research assistants and statistical support.
A TROG Category D project is defined as “An investigator-initiated project or registry that involves data capture, data mining or secondary analysis”, and more information about this type of project can be found on the TROG website.
This grant is among a range that the College offers to promote the culture of radiation oncology research and to support our most able and committed early career researchers to carry out significant research projects. It is hoped that the recipients of this grant will go on to have careers in which research plays a significant role to the benefit of patients, the recipients themselves, and the wider oncology community.
This opportunity has been made possible by the grant sponsor, AstraZeneca.
