faceWe are actively involved in tertiary research at all levels of medical and surgical allergy, rhinologic and respiratory care. Our projects involve both international collaborations, and multi-centre studies within Australia. Both Prof Harvey and Rimmer speak regularly at national and international meetings on allergy, rhinologic and respiratory research.

Please contact either A/Prof Richard Harvey or Nadine Mrad if you would like more information about our research, or are interested in becoming involved in any of the projects listed below.

  • Implantable therapies for nasal allergy
  • UV light therapy for allergic disease
  • The influence of mucus rheological changes (viscosity) on the sensation of post-nasal drip
  • Lysine aspirin desensitisation therapy for nasal polyps and chronic rhinosinusitis
  • Steroid irrigation therapy for chronic inflammatory sino-nasal disease
  • Diagnostic treatment protocols for facial/sinus pain
  • Novel topical therapies in CRS management
  • Clinical outcomes in skull base surgery
  • Outcomes assessment for open rhinoplasty and endoscopic turbinate reduction
  • Basic and clinical science to the eitiopathogensis of CRS
  • A tissue bank program allowing a range of other research projects
