5 awarded ASTRO research grants

The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has selected five physicians as recipients of two grants funded by the Radiation Oncology Institute the Junior Faculty Career Research Training Award and the Residents/Fellows in Radiation Oncology Research Seed Grant Award. Winners were selected by ASTRO's Research Evaluation Committee.

The Junior Faculty Career Research Training Award is awarded to stimulate interest in radiation research early in academic career development by giving junior physician faculty the opportunity to focus on research in radiation oncology, biology, physics or outcomes/health services research. It is presented each year to a board-eligible physician or physicist in radiation oncology or a radiobiologist who is within the first three years of his or her junior faculty appointment. This is a two-year award in the amount of $100,000 per year. This year's recipients are Andrew Elia, M.D., Ph.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and Steven Lin, M.D., Ph.D., of The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

The Residents/Fellows in Radiation Oncology Research Seed Grant Award is given to support residents or fellows who are planning a career focusing primarily on basic science or clinical research. The grants are awarded each year for a one-year project and are in amounts of up to $25,000 each. This year's recipients are Eileen Connolly, M.D., Ph.D., of the New York University Langone Medical Center in New York, Heath Skinner, M.D., Ph.D., of The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and Meng Welliver, M.D., Ph.D., of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

"Past recipients of these awards have gone on to make great contributions to the specialty of radiation oncology and to ASTRO," Tim R. Williams, M.D., chairman of the ASTRO Board of Directors and a radiation oncologist at Boca Raton Community Hospital, said. "It's important to encourage young researchers early in their careers, and ASTRO has a proud record of doing that. Congratulations to this year's awardees."
