Matthew E. Spector, M.D.

Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery

Areas of Interest

My research interests relate to clinical and translational questions in head and neck oncology and head and neck reconstruction. I am interested in the study of head and neck cancer as well as outcomes research to improve patient selection and prediction of response to therapy. Spending an extra year after residency as a fellow in head and neck surgical oncology and microvascular reconstruction put me in an ideal situation to contribute to team science in the study of head and neck cancer.
