Welcome to the Journal of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology!

JARO is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes research topics in relation to the content of the Annual ARO Mid-Winter Meeting with a focus on the auditory and vestibular systems.


The result [from the NIDCD Strategic Plan] is a plan that presents a unified vision organized into six main priority themes: (1) basic research to better understand normal function and disordered processes; (2) model systems to inform research and transform findings into more effective treatments; (3) precision medicine approaches to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment; (4) translation of scientific advances into standard clinical care; (5) biomedical data sharing; and (6) advanced technologies to improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment
