Ranee Mehra, MD
My clinical and research interests focus on head and neck cancers, including thyroid and salivary gland malignancies and thoracic malignancies. I am a clinical investigator with an interest in developmental therapeutics. I also focus on evaluating biomarkers as they relate to head and neck tumor characteristics and prognosis, with the goal of eventually being able to optimize care based on a tumor’s biomarker profile. I am interested in incorporating novel agents in the management of head and neck and thoracic malignancies and have been either the principal or co-Investigator for clinical trials utilizing targeted therapies and immune checkpoint inhibitors. For instance, currently I am Co-PI of the ALK arm of the NCI Match clinical trial. I am also a Member of the ECOG Head and Neck Committee.
