Elekta SBRT Research Grant Program
Stereotactic Radiation Therapy Research (SBRT and SRT)
Elekta places particular emphasis on research that advances the use of linear-accelerator based stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT). Applications related to the use of linear accelerator based SBRT are strongly encouraged, and will be preferentially considered.
The Elekta Stereotactic Radiation Therapy Research Grant Program
The development of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy has evolved significantly over the last two decades. Today, SBRT is in common use for treatment of tumors in many anatomical sites. Strong belief that the technique has significant potential for improving outcomes and reducing costs is in part driving these efforts. Techniques and resultant outcomes, however, vary widely and there is still much to learn.
The Elekta Stereotactic Radiation Therapy Research Grant Objective
Consequently, Elekta is promoting efforts to advance the understanding of SBRT, particularly as it relates to its delivery using linear accelerator technology. A substantial proportion of our near-term research and development efforts will center on SBRT, and we invite our research partners to participate in these activities. Our granting mechanism is aimed at facilitating these efforts, and we encourage applications directed at these goals.
