Thyroid Head & Neck Research Center (THNRC)
In 2009, we opened the functional outcomes clinical research center at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, which is the sole US site of the international Head and Neck Research Network (HNRN). This network of research centers was developed in 2008 to create global outreach with the intent of performing critical assessments of patients before and after treatment for head and neck and thyroid cancers. Our laboratory studies the impact of various treatments including surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and prosthetic rehabilitation on patient function and quality of life. The research center assesses outcomes with a fast track to achieve statistical significance, to guide the future of patient care in head and neck and thyroid cancer.
