International Head and Neck Cancer Epidemiology Consortium


2020 INHANCE meeting on zoom
Each year in the world, 600,000 individuals are diagnosed with head and neck cancer which includes cancers of the oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx and larynx.

The INHANCE consortium is a collaboration of research groups leading large molecular epidemiology studies of head and neck cancer. We aim to improve the understanding of the causes and mechanisms of head and neck cancer.
