The UPMC Department of Otolaryngology is the home of the Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) grant in Head and Neck Cancer at the University of Pittsburgh.
Funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI-NIH), this collaborative grant provides money for multiple laboratories involved in biomedical head and neck cancer research.
Other ongoing research projects at the UPMC Division of Head and Neck Cancer include:
The division basis its research efforts on the guiding principal that the findings of today may lead to new knowledge and improved patient care.
All of the patients undergoing head and neck cancer treatment at UPMC have the opportunity to participate in clinical outcomes research.
We carefully track important treatment and outcomes data of consenting patients in the head and neck tumor registry. This database allows the physicians at UPMC to obtain vital treatment-related outcomes information about their patients.
Funding for this form of practiced-based learning is through private philanthropy thanks to the Stout Family Fund for Head and Neck Cancer Research. This will assure that future generations can benefit from the experiences of today’s patients.
