○ Novel radiation delivery, and the benefits and shortcomings of methods such as Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) with comparison to proton therapy;
○ Emerging molecular-targeted agents, and their efficacy and role in the treatment of head and neck cancer, including thyroid cancer.
○ Surgical treatments, including the impact of breakthroughs in technology leading to robotic surgery, endoscopic approaches to the neck and thyroid gland, image-guided treatment of skull base neoplasms, sentinel node mapping
○ Advances in radiology and imaging will be reviewed: Describe approaches to reduce sampling error in during surgery or pathological assessment of the tumor specimen of pre-operative and post-operative optical imaging technologies
○ Review of new reconstructive surgical approaches and examine with conventional strategies to compare the outcomes, cost, and latest innovative instrumentation and hemostatic devices

○ FInding Breakthrough approaches for disease detection, pre-treatment staging, and assessment of treatment response.
○ Eminent throughput laboratory methods to diagnose tumors and biofluids that include whole-genome sequencing, cDNA microarrays, array CGH, SNP arrays, and integrative genomics
○ The importance of human papillomavirus elements and or antibodies in tumors and biofluids
○ Pre-clinical evaluation of novel therapeutics
○ Quick detection of oral pre-malignancy cancer and chemopreventive strategies
○ Recently discovered biomarkers and their utility in treatment selection
○ In addition, participants with research careers may also be able to find new collaborators, develop new research protocols (including clinical trials), and participate in enhancing the existing protocols and trials

• Assess and apply the process, outcomes, and quality of delivering care to head and neck cancer patients, including:
○ The value of treatment guidelines including the NCCN treatment guidelines in improving patient care
○ How to measure patient-reported outcomes and maximize their utility
○ How to establish a surgical quality and performance monitoring program
○ How cost-effectiveness is important to consider in considering novel treatments
