Other Clinical Research

In addition to the trials listed above, our faculty and residents are engaged in a variety of clinical research projects. The range of investigations is as diverse as the field of otolaryngology and head and neck surgery: tumors of the head and neck, sinusitis, tonsillectomy, vocal ford lesions, otitis media, pediatric sleep apnea, hearing loss, and tracheotomy, just to name a few.

The growth of our research enterprise also includes the establishment of departmental Tissue Biorepository. This and other initiatives aim to provide our faculty and residents with the best opportunities to conduct meaningful research.
