Welcome to the Otorhinolaryngological Research Society

About the Society

The Otorhinolaryngological Research Society was formed in 1979 to promote research in ENT. Its membership is open to doctors of all grades in otorhinolaryngology in the UK, and meetings are also open to those from overseas and those in related disciplines. The meetings consist of free papers covering all aspects of the specialty, and are held twice a year.

The ORS is a forum for the best in current research in otorhinolaryngology in the UK. Each paper chosen to be presented at an ORS meeting is blindly peer reviewed by a panel of academics from the field of ENT, and upon presentation, papers are given immediate feedback and critiquing from an audience with an extensive knowledge base in ENT, research and pure sciences. Very few arenas offer presenters the undivided attention of so many esteemed academics in the confinements of one room, as at an ORS meeting. Even if you do not plan to present any work, the meetings are an excellent way to keep abreast of new developments and are CME accredited.

Website Migration - August 15th 2016

We got the surprise news last week that the website hosting company, Host Partners, had announced that it was insolvent and had ceased trading. All of their hosted websites (including the ORS website) would be unavailable after 16th August. We therefore had about a week to find a new host and set up the website again.

We have purchased some hosting space with 123-reg and I'm now rebuilding the site as quickly as possible. Please bear with me though; I was in the process of updating the layout anyway, and have needed to greatly accelerate the process. And do my regular job!

Right now, most pages are available, although the web contact form is currently unavailable. I'll post notifications here as more of the site is completed.

Thanks for your patience,

Andrew Lavens
