Radiation Oncology-Biology Integration Network (ROBIN) Centers (U54 Clinical Trial Required)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications for U54 Research Centers that will collectively establish the Radiation Oncology-Biology Integration Network (ROBIN). ROBIN U54 Centers will provide highly focused research capabilities that will:

  • Prioritize and support research to test translational hypotheses that advance understanding of mechanistic interactions and biologic consequences of radiation treatment;
  • Support longitudinal collection of clinically annotated research biospecimens prior to (e.g., baseline), during (e.g., on-treatment), and after radiation therapy;
  • Develop a multidisciplinary workforce and engage stakeholders with the expertise to conduct studies in translational and pre-clinical research to best inform clinical radiation oncology studies, including leveraging data science and informatics approaches.
