HeadLines - Our Mission of Discovery

HeadLines Fall 2013

Our Mission of Discovery

It is with pleasure that we share with you news about our department’s research programs. In this issue of HeadLines, you will learn about the search being undertaken to improve vestibular function. In addition, we touch on how we are improving residency training and one of our physician-scientists’ temporary move to a research leadership position at NASA.

The department has a long history of excellence in all types of specialized medical investigation, including basic science, translational and clinical research. It is one of our important missions, and it is critical to making advancements in patient care.

In each issue of HeadLines, we hope to share the progress we are making in understanding the basic underpinnings of head and neck disorders and the translation of these findings into practical applications to improve patient care outcomes.

Our department will celebrate 100 years of excellence in patient care, education and research next spring. We are in the process of chronicling our history to commemorate our centennial celebration. If we reflect on the accomplishments that have been made before us, we will be better able to make further progress in the next century.
