2024 ASTRO-AAPM Physics Resident/Post-Doctoral Fellow Seed Grant

AAPM and the American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) are happy to announce a jointly funded research seed grant for Medical Physics Residents and Post-Doctoral Fellows. The goal of the joint seed grant is to advance the field of radiation oncology in novel ways through the support of early-career scientists involved in radiation oncology physics-related research. With this jointly supported grant, both societies aim to help support the next generation of researchers in the field of radiation oncology. Up to two awards ($25,000 maximum / each) are anticipated. The 2024 award cycle will begin on July 1, 2024 and end on June 20, 2025.

Sponsored by the AAPM Science Council through the AAPM Education & Research Fund and the American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).
