The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAOHNSF) and the American Neurotology Society (ANS) are inviting applications for the Herbert Silverstein Otology/Neurotology Research Award.
Through the program, a single grant of $25,000 over two years will be awarded in support of a clinical or translational research project focused on diseases, disorders, or conditions of the peripheral or central auditory and/or vestibular system. Research supported by the award should be specifically directed toward the pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of auditory and/or vestibular disease and must be either clinical/translational or basic, with a clear and demonstrable clinical relevance. While not specifically required, proposals are encouraged that are focused on otosclerosis or Meniere’s disease and/or which aim to introduce new knowledge and methodology from other disciplines to research in otology or neurotology, or that demonstrate collaborative effort with members of other related disciplines.
Priority will be given to fellows or junior faculty who have completed residencies or fellowships within four years of the application receipt date, although otolaryngology-head and neck surgery residents are eligible.
Letters of Intent are due December 16. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by January 15, 2020.
To be eligible, applicants must be a member of AAO-HNS and ANS in good standing at the time of the application and receipt of the award.
