A series of working group discussions were held during the recent Second International Head and Neck Oncology Research Conference. The purpose of these discussions was to define clinical and basic research priorities in the areas of chemotherapy, tumor immunology, tumor model development, flow cytometry, etiology, and virology. The results of these discussions are summarized and condensed in this report. The recommendations of the various Working Groups indicate that intensive basic research efforts in head and neck oncology need to be expanded, particularly in the areas of tumor model development, cell biology, and immunology. These specific Working Group recommendations should serve as a resource for research program development at the local and national levels.
