Oncogenomics/proteomics of head and neck cancers

Jason I. Kass, Howard S. Moskowitz, Jennifer R. Grandis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Over the past 20 years, we have seen a rapid development in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC). These discoveries are in large part the result of advances in technology. Here, we first review the major technologies in both oncogenomics and proteomics as they apply to HNSCC and then review the results of seminal studies. These data lay the foundation for the next decade of discovery in HNSCC and are relevant to the clinician and scientist.
