EUROGIN 2023 abstract submission deadline extended! New submission deadline: October 17


HPV and Head & Neck Forum

Coordinators: E. Rettig (USA), K. Lang Kuhs (USA),
J. Klussmann (Germany), H. Mirghani (France)

The EUROGIN HPV and Head & Neck Cancer Forum highlights recent advances and areas of active research in the field of HPV-related head and neck cancers. This year’s Forum features talks on epidemiology and prevention, HPV-OPC screening studies, updates on current management, innovations in surveillance and new discoveries of the molecular landscape of HPV-OPC tumors. New for this year, the Forum will also feature several panel discussions exploring the potential promise and peril of screening, surgery versus chemoradiation therapy and risks versus benefit of using liquid biopsy for HPV-OPC surveillance.
