GORTEC (Groupe d'Oncologie Radiothérapie Tête Et Cou or Head and Neck Oncology and Radiotherapy Group) was created in 1999 by five founding centers (Clermont-Ferrand, Nancy, Nantes, Tours and Villejuif) with the aim of coordinating clinical and/or laboratory studies in the field of cervicofacial oncology. GORTEC studies are open to all centers wishing to participate. However, a quality control of the records of patients included in these trials is routinely performed by outside experts.

In parallel with the Management Board, the association has set up a Strategic and Scientific Committee composed of some twenty members, who are very active in terms of patient recruitment for clinical studies. The Strategic and Scientific Committee defines the association’s scientific policy. The Committee’s mission is to assess action strategies to elucidate and propose to the Management Board evolutions with respect to GORTEC’s missions and the actions envisaged.
