Dr. Emerick is involved in several areas of clinical research. He is the site PI for multiple multi-site research efforts focusing on clinical outcomes from head and neck cancer treatments and reconstruction following head and neck surgery.
Dr. Emerick is studying methods of improving the technique of sentinel lymph node biopsy in the head and neck region. This includes studying the utility of SPECT CT imaging preoperatively as well as intraoperative techniques to improve the diagnostic accuracy and safety for this procedure. He is also engaged in research to better understand the apparent increased lethality of head and neck cutaneous melanoma.
Lastly, Dr. Emerick works in collaboration with the Laboratory of Quantitative Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. Current work involves creating a web-based outcomes calculator to predict outcomes of head and neck cancers. This research will further increase our understanding of the significance of specific clinicopathologic features and how they impact survival.
