Research Facilities

As a one of the United States' top medical school research programs, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and the ENT Institute at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center offer excellent research facilities and resources.

The department’s research program encompasses all studies associated with conditions affecting the head and neck, including hearing, cancer of the head and neck and tissue engineering research. The ENT research, occupying over 10,000 square feet of space, is carried out in laboratories located in University Hospital's Wearn Building, the School of Dentistry and the School of Medicine. In these building dedicated facilities are available 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 School of Dentistry and by the proximity to world-class facilities and institutions, including the Metrohealth Medical Center, The Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center and the like. 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 departments 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.
