Laryngology Research

Ongoing research within the Division of Laryngology at IU School of Medicine includes an HPV research group that tests novel systemic treatments in recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, which can cause airway obstruction. Novel discoveries in chemotherapy and immunomodulatory drugs aim to target HPV cells at a molecular level.

In addition, the Division of Laryngology pursues clinical research focused on throat and neck disorders. Recent contributions include outcomes in the treatment of laryngeal cancer with the KTP laser, adjunctive treatments for laryngeal papilloma, surgical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea treated with the hypoglossal nerve stimulator implant, endoscopic management of Zenker’s diverticula, voice outcomes in patients treated for vocal cord paralysis, and endoscopic management of laryngotracheal stenosis.
