Research Facilities

As one of the United States' top medical school research programs, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine offers excellent research facilities and resources.


The Department of Otolaryngology research program encompasses all studies associated with conditions affecting the head and neck, including hearing, head and neck/oral cancer, pediatrics, sleep medicine, and tissue engineering research. Research is carried out in over 10,000 square feet of available space, located in Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine, and Wolstein Research Building. Dedicated facilities are available in these buildings for animal experimentation, tissue culture, electrophysiology, and high throughput screening to identify small molecule drugs.


The strength of our program is enhanced by an excellent interdisciplinary and collaborative intellectual environment at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine, and by the proximity to world-class facilities and institutions, including University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, Metrohealth Medical Center, and Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. The teaching atmosphere fosters a high level of care, ensuring that diagnostic procedures and medical/surgical treatment represent the most advanced medical knowledge and technology available.


Library facilities are available within the hospital as well as in the Department of Otolaryngology. More extensive collections are housed in the School of Medicine Health Sciences Library and at the Allen Memorial Medical Library, adjacent to the hospital. Residents and physicians have privileges at these libraries.
