meeting preview

The ARS Spring Meeting at COSM takes place April 19 and 20, 2018, and will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, National Harbor Maryland, minutes from Washington, DC. The meeting will feature impressive scientific and clinical content as over 200 abstracts were submitted for the program committee to review, making it a tough task to choose the best ones for the meeting. Our thanks go out to them for their hard work that resulted in such a quality program.

The core of the meeting will be selected podium presentations that will report on a wide range of topics, including clinical and basic science investigations into the pathophysiology of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), olfaction research, the role of microbes in CRS, and newer and emerging treatments for CRS. New information on skull base conditions will be shared and additional groups of papers will re-examine common practices in rhinology. These presentations will be complemented by over 100 posters covering every possible aspect of rhinology, as well as a poster session to review the work of our poster presenters.

A special highlight is that Andrew Lane, MD one of our own, will lead us through a discussion of his NIH sponsored research and how it fits into the overall rhinology research landscape. Panels at the meeting will address a wide range of topics, from fresh looks at compelling recent research advances to lessons learned by leaders in our field. We also plan to review new initiatives in our field, including a discussion led by David Poetker, MD on the organization of Rhinology Fellowships.

We hope to see you in DC for a great meeting!

James N Palmer, MD,
President Elect and Program Chair
