For studies of the “comparative effectiveness” of different treatments

Timothy Zagar

Congratulations to radiation oncologist Dr. Timothy Zagar for his receipt of one of only seven annual research awards from the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). Dr. Zagar’s award comes jointly from ASTRO and the affiliated Radiation Oncology Institute (ROI), in support of his “comparative effectiveness” research, which is the study of which type of medical treatment (radiation therapy in this case) works the best while causing the least harm, for whom, and under what circumstances.
