The Art, Science and Future of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery
The ninth biennial Frontiers in Otolaryngology conference was held in 2014 at the Sheraton on the Park in Sydney. Organised by Foundation Chairman Dr Dean Beaumont, Frontiers 2014 was an outstanding showcase for scientific and clinical developments in otorhinolaryngology.
The Conference Program featured an exceptional group of international speakers, including Prof Robert Ferris (University of Pittsburgh), Prof Robert Kern (Northwestern University), and Prof Magnus von Unge (Karolinska Institute). Their expert views were supported by perspectives from leading Australian scientists, including Australia’s Chief Scientist Professor Ian Chubb AC, Professor John Windsor of the University of Auckland, and renowned linguist Professor Kate Burridge of Monash University.
Topics addressed included: epigenetics, mitochondria, foetal surgery, cancer immunotherapy, genetics and microbiometrics, neuronal function, neuroplasticity and epidemiology. Speakers applied these insights to the practise and future directions of major aspects of otorhinolaryngology.
The Conference also heard of clinical and translational work proceeding in relation to the middle ear, the sinuses and the head, neck and thyroid.
