I have multiple clinical research projects in progress, and I am the primary investigator in each one.  I am evaluating the efficacy, patient tolerance and preference, and financial implications of office-based Rhinologic surgery.  I am also performing a prospective study evaluating the subjective symptom of nasal obstruction and comparing this to the objective findings on exam, specifically the degree and direction of nasal septal deviation.

I am also collaborating with Sarah Wise, MD on her funded research projects evaluating intercellular junctions in nasal and sinus mucosa.
