Project Description:

Our research program is a unique, truly translational bedside-bench-bedside program that is involved in improving treatment outcomes for our patients in rhinology and skull base surgery. This consists of three large arms, including clinical outcomes research, translational research, and more basic science investigations. Within each arm there are multiple projects going on. Broadly – we are examining the relationship between inflammatory markers in the sinuses and clinical measures of CRS disease severity.
