Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Research


The Bobby R. Alford Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery has a strong tradition of biomedical research in the areas of the special senses and other organ systems of the head and neck. Head and neck cancer is also a focus, particularly immunotherapy and HPV-related cancers. Basic, clinical, and translational projects in these areas are ongoing, and support for these projects comes from a variety of sources including competitive awards from the NIH and research foundations.

Clinical research is conducted in all fields of otolaryngology, including facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, hearing and balance disorders, head and neck cancer, laryngology, rhinology and allergy and pediatric otolaryngology.
