The NCRI Head & Neck Group brings together clinicians, scientists and patients, carers and others affected by cancer (also known as ‘consumers’), amongst many others, to coordinate the development of a strategic portfolio of research within the field of head and neck cancer. The group works closely with clinical research networks, funders and researchers to develop research to improve outcomes for head and neck cancer patients.  

The NCRI Head & Neck Group consists of an executive group, chaired by Dr Martin Forsterwhich provides oversight of the research landscape and proactively identifies opportunities for the group. The NCRI Head & Neck Group also has several subgroups that develop research in areas of strategic need.
