Head & Neck Cancer

The Head and Neck Oncology Program at Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute is at the forefront of national efforts to improve the outcome of patients treated for head and neck malignancies.  The program comprises 14 members from nine departments in three colleges. 

The focus of the Head and Neck Oncology Program is on the development and support of research and educational activities to improve the detection, prevention, rehabilitation and quality-of-life issues relating to head and neck cancers. In addition, one of the program's goals is to further develop translational, interdisciplinary research and educational programs. 

As one of only four institutions approved by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to conduct phase I and II clinical trials on NCI sponsored anticancer agents, the OSUCCC – James has access to more leading-edge targeted cancer therapies than most hospitals across America. That translates to better outcomes, fewer side effects and more hope. Search open cancer clinical trials​.​
