SANTRO is a non-for-profit organization that strives to serve as a network for scientific activity, educational courses, clinical trials, and scholar exchange for oncology professionals across the Pacific Ocean. Within the first 5 years, SANTRO hopes to:

  • Promote Chinese professionals to present state-of-art techniques, novel scientific findings and clinical trial concepts to the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and to support and participate in ASTRO International Affairs activities.
  • Organize educational and scientific symposiums in China for enthusiastic professionals to present state-of-art techniques, novel scientific findings and clinical trial concepts to Chinese Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (CSTRO).
  • Facilitate young physicians, physicists, and biologists to obtain doctorate or post-doctorate training in the United States and China, and promote expert professionals from the two countries to lecture and visit each other on an individual basis.
  • Establish a system and initiate a few quality-assured clinical trials and promote Chinese Cancer Centers to become international members of Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG).
