Subject Areas:

The purpose of the American Otological Society (AOS) Research Grant is to encourage and support academic research in sciences related to the ear. Beginning with awards for the 2015-2016 grant cycle, all of the AOS grant awards may involve research on any topic related to ear disorders and are no longer limited to studies of Meni?re?s disease or otosclerosis. The research need not be directly on an otological disease but may explore normal functions of the cochlea, labyrinth or central auditory or vestibular systems. However, the applicant must describe how the proposed research will benefit our understanding, diagnosis or treatment of otological disorders.

Research Grants are available to physician or doctoral-level investigators in the United States and Canada only. A research proposal will qualify for review when it involves anatomical, physiological, biochemical, pharmacological, physical, genetic, environmental, psychological, pathological or audiological investigations, or other studies which are related in some way to the function or dysfunction of the ear. A statement is to be included under the Research Plan explaining how the proposed research will benefit our understanding, diagnosis or treatment of otological disorders.
