The CORE program provides a uniform cetralized research grant application, review, and administration process. This process was designed to achieve three objectives:
- provide support for the most meritorious research in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery;
- educate young investigators to prepare competitive grant applications;
- and prepare more surgeon-scientists to serve as peer reviewers for NIH and other research agencies.
Since 1985, CORE has played a vital role by awarding more than 600 grants and more than $10 million for research projects, research training, and career development to further the specialty of otolaryngology. These grants, ranging in award size from $5,000 to $80,000, have been essential for increasing the research base for otolaryngology.
The CORE program brings greater scale and less fragmentation and overlap to otolaryngology-head and neck surgery research opportunities, reduces the aggregate costs of the individual grant programs, and enables a comprehensive overview of the spectrum of promising otolaryngology and head and neck surgery research/researchers to promote to NIH and other agencies.
