2020 UTDRO Collaborative Seed Grant Announcement

Jul 24, 2020

Spring 2020 Competition Results

The Department of Radiation Oncology is pleased to announce that the Spring 2020 UTDRO Collaborative Seed Grant has been awarded to Dr. Eric Leung, et al for their study titled, "SPARTACUS II – A Randomized Phase II Feasibility Trial on Hypofractionated Radiation versus Conventional Fractionation in Endometrial Cancers”.

The Research Committee notes that this is an important study that is very relevant to radiation medicine and could quite possibly lead to change in practice for patients with endometrial cancers. It will further establish UTDRO as leaders in this area and should lead to future trials.

Congratulations to Dr. Eric Leung (PI) and the Co-Principal Investigators; Drs. Toni Barnes (SHSC), Patrick Cheung (SHSC), Melanie Davidson (SHSC), Elysia Donovan (SHSC), Anthony Fyles (UHN), Adam Gladwish (RVH), Kathy Han (UHN), Andrew Loblaw (SHSC), Julia Skliarenko (RVH), Amandeep Taggar (SHSC) and Jasper Yuen (CVH).
