Upper Aero Digestive Tract

Purpose: The UADT working group will encompass malignancies of the head/neck and lung. Given the significant overlap in risk factors, genetic alterations and treatment challenges between head/neck and lung cancer, we feel that the grouping of these two disease categories into a single DOT is a natural fit. Here lies the groundwork for a competitive Emerging DOT application in the near future.
