In a recent speech, Senator John Glenn stated that, in the past 15 years, the gross investment of the United States in research and development had decreased by, at least, 20% and that there had been a corresponding critical reduction in the production of technically trained people needed to make advances in our knowledge in their fields. This statement is appropriate for this workshop. To begin our deliberations concerning research goals and methods in otolaryngology this morning, it seems only right to review the history of research training in otolaryngology. My charge is to present the story of research training support for our specialty by the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke (NINCDS). Since the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Blindness (NINDB) first undertook such support in 1956, it has been, by far, the greatest influence and largest contributor to research training in otolaryngology.
