The Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) is an international
association of scientists and physicians dedicated to scientific
exploration among all of the disciplines in the field of otolaryngology.
Research efforts involve the ear, nose, head, neck and related neural
structures and the functions these structures support including hearing,
balance, speech, taste and smell among others. A wide range of scientific
approaches is represented including biochemical, physiological,
behavioral, developmental and evolutionary. A scientific meeting is held
annually in February. For further information, please contact Gerald R.
Popelka, Ph.D., Editor.
The ARO NEWS is the newsletter of the association. Features include topics
on current issues, a calendar of events, information on the scientific
meetings, and positions available. It is published three times per year in
spring (April), fall (October) and winter (December). Certain
time-sensitive information such as the Calendar of Events and Positions
Available are updated regularly and available under "What's New?" prior to
publication of the upcoming issue.
The ARO Abstracts contains abstracts of the papers presented at the annual
scientific meetings and is published yearly at the time of the meeting.
Each abstract entry contains the title, authors, institutions, and the
complete abstract. Abstracts for the upcoming meeting are available here
several months prior to the meeting.
ARO Virtual Library
The ARO Virtual Library is a rapidly-growing collection of resources that
relate to research in the field of otolaryngology. The "holdings" consist
of direct links to the vast array of material available electronically
over the internet, and lists of material on other media such as videotapes
and laser disks. The breadth of the material spans the range from
elementary school to peer-reviewed research journals.
