Fox Chase Faculty Co-Write and Edit SCCHN Book

scchnbookA new book co-edited by Fox Chase deputy chief scientific officer Erica A. Golemis, PhD, and Barbara Burtness, MD, formerly of Fox Chase and now at Yale Cancer Center, summarizes the unique pathobiology of head and neck cancers. Molecular Determinants of Head and Neck Cancer, one of very few books in its field, introduces the origins and subclasses of squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck (SCCHNs) and how those factors impact disease profile and response to treatment. The book then summarizes current understanding of the genetic, epigenetic, and protein expression changes associated with various classes of the disease, and it discusses future therapeutic targets. The book contains chapters co-authored by Golemis and Burtness as well as Fox Chase faculty members Camille Ragin, MPH, PhD, Ranee Mehra, MD, and Ilya Serebriiskii, PhD; Temple University School of Medicine faculty member Jeffrey Liu, MD; and Fox Chase and Temple staff members Tim Beck, BS, and Jennifer Cracchiolo, MD.
