Associations between markers of social functioning and depression and quality of life in survivors of head and neck cancer: Findings from the Head and Neck Cancer 5000 study


British Association of Head and Neck Oncologists (BAHNO) Annual Scientific Meeting 2024

We were proud to represent HN5000 at the British Association of Head and Neck Oncologists (BAHNO) Annual Scientific Meeting 2024 in London. This was attended by the full scope of UK multidisciplinary professionals involved in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with head and neck cancer, in addition to patient and public representatives. We were delighted to see that HN5000 data was included in a wide range of research projects presented, and utilised by many different disciplines. It was the perfect event to launch our 10 year follow up study.

Scanning of our histopathology slides

We’re currently working hard on our digital histology imaging project, which is being funded by the Showering Trust at Southmead Hospital in Bristol. We are creating a collection of more than 5000 histology images. These images show the detailed structure of tumours, as well as common studies on biomarkers found in tissues. The digital library of histopathological images will be directly connected to our HN5000 databases, which store information about diseases and their patterns. This means we are able to easily share data on diseases and tissue biomarkers with researchers.
