Purpose

This is a single-center cross-sectional imaging and correlative biomarker study in patients with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN). Cohort 1 will be patients with unresectable or metastatic SCCHN cancer receiving standard of care (SOC) anti-PD-1 treatment and Cohort 2 will be neoadjuvant study participants who will receive one dose of anti-PD-1 treatment prior to tumor resection or radiation. Blood sampling and tissue biopsies will be collected from both cohorts and both cohorts will undergo two whole body PET(Positron Emission Tomography)/CT(Computed Tomography) imaging with [18F]F-AraG. First scan prior to initiating anti-PD-1 treatment and second scan post initiation of anti-PD-1 treatment in Cohort 1 and prior to tumor resection or radiation in Cohort 2
