Head and Neck Cancer Clinical Trials and Research

Memorial Sloan Kettering doctors are constantly working to improve treatment for people with head and neck cancer through clinical trials. Participating in a clinical trial may give you access to treatments that are not widely available elsewhere. These studies may offer additional options if the cancer has returned after standard treatment.

Our doctors are running clinical trials testing:

  • new drug therapies for head and neck cancer, including immunotherapies and targeted therapies, that can boost the effectiveness of your care
  • safer and more-effective approaches to head and neck radiation therapy
  • strategies for preserving the quality of life during and after treatment

Our experts can help determine which clinical trial is right for you. Browse our listing of clinical trials that are currently enrolling new patients.
