Immunotherapy is becoming increasingly utilised as a treatment option for head and neck cancer, in particular cutaneous SCC. Will surgery soon be obsolete?
Join us for an exciting webinar where we discuss the latest translational advances in immunotherapy and how we might see this impact on clinical practice in the future from the team of clinician scientists at the Earle A. Chiles Research Institute at the Providence Cancer Centre, Portland Oregon.
Our expert panel of medical oncologist (Dr Rom Leidner), radiation oncologist (Dr Marka Crittenden) and surgeon (Dr Bryan Bell) will discuss their latest research, as well as the challenges and opportunities of using immunotherapy to treat head and neck cancer, in particular mucosal SCC. From the basics of immunotherapy to the “bench to bedside” research that is transforming cancer treatment, this webinar is a must-attend for anyone interested in the future of cancer care.  With increasing numbers of neoadjuvant immunotherapy trials on the horizon, this is a great opportunity to explore its potential and gain valuable insights on how treatment paradigms may change in the near future.
This is webinar is targeted for all H+N clinicians and scientists and not only medical oncologists. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to learn from the experts and connect with others in the field.
