    Dr. Uttam K. Sinha graduated with distinction from the Calcutta University, India in 1985. He was invited by the House Ear Institute and University of Southern California where he started his research career in molecular biology of neuroscience and cancer. He then finished residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at USC. He continued to peruse academic career and completed a clinical fellowship in Microvascular and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Mount Sinai Hospital, New York. He then went to Leon, France to complete a clinical fellowship in laryngology. Subsequently, he joined the faculty of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at USC. Because of his academic achievements, leadership, teaching and research, he became Chief and Residency Program Director for the department. His major areas of research are head and neck cancer, thyroid cancer, plastic and reconstructive surgery, trauma, and speech and swallowing. By using nanotechnology, Dr. Sinha and his team are able to detect cancer cell in the saliva and serum. He is also studying the mechanism of metastasis. Dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing) is a common symptom following head and neck cancer therapy. Dr. Sinha and his team introduced a novel treatment called neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) for rehabilitation of swallowing using a new “platform” technology called BION. He received multiple federal and foundation grants. His dedication to patient care and research made him world authority in head and neck diseases. To further the research endeavors, Dr. Sinha has established collaboration with multiple national and international institutes from England, France, India, China and Mexico. Three years ago Dr. Sinha launched a Patient Survivorship Program (http://hncsupport.org). The Support Group is actively involved in patient education and promoting awareness about head and neck cancer.
