Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the

Meeting on Experimental and Translational Research in Head and Neck Cancer

in our lovely city, Cologne.

Our congress continues the series of annual meetings on Experimental Head and Neck Oncology under the auspices of the Working Group Oncology of the German Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery.

We successfully managed to create an extraordinary program with outstanding invited speakers and an array of high-quality abstracts for oral presentations of national, as well as international research groups. These include topics on translational research in head and neck cancer (from bench to bedside and back) as well as breakthroughs on salivary gland cancer.

One of our major objectives is to support the exchange of transnational research groups to further develop head and neck cancer research in Germany.

We are confident that we will have an exciting meeting characterized by stimulating discussions even beyond the confines of the presentations.

Jens Peter Klussmann
