In brief: Absolutely

Numerous trialsare available including early (phase 1 or 2) and late trials (phase 3).
These trials evaluate newer drugs and newer radiation approahces typically. For trials info and sites the most uptodate site is the national cancer institute (www. Cancer.Gov). Talk to your oncologist and look up the websites of your local hospitals for trials in your area.

In brief: Most likely, yes.

You can do a search on clinicaltrials.
Gov - this gives a listing of all available clinical trials. Not knowing what specific type of head and neck cancer you are interested in, it's harder to get more specific, but the info on this website can tell you the name of the trial, the basic information about what they're trying to study, some of the criteria for eligibility and the location of the study.
