Welcome to Asian Society of Head & Neck Oncology (ASHNO).
ASHNO is a multi-disciplinary society for head & neck oncology, which was initiated in 2008 by the strong leadership of Prof. Hao, the founding president & general secretary.
By the recent advances in medical sciences and technologies, now, multi-disciplinary approaches are required to enable the personalized therapy for the individual patients with head and neck cancers. As well known, head and neck cancers in Asian countries show different biological behaviors and characters from western countries in various aspects. Thus, it is really important idea that all the countries in the Asian region get gather and share our experiences and knowledge, in order to boost up our clinical practice to the next level, to promote clinical and basic researches and to raise the next generations.
Scientific meeting has been held every 2 year. First congress was held in Taipei (Taiwan 2009), 2nd in Goa (India 2011), 3rd in Cebu (Philippines 2013) and 4th in Kobe (Japan 2015). 5th congress will be held in Bali March 23 to 25, 2017 by the host of Prof. Marlinda Adham.
