                          A Message from the President

Dear Dysphagia Research Society family,

I hope everyone is having a very successful 2015 so far and wish you all continued success for the rest of the year and years to come. The 23rd Annual Dysphagia Research Society Meeting and Postgraduate course is being held in the wonderful city of Chicago this year.

The interest in dysphagia research across all disciplines was overwhelming on looking at the number of abstracts submitted this year. This certainly makes us one of the premier conferences focusing on the management of swallowing disorders where members from several disciplines gather under one roof to exchange new ideas, foster collaborative research, and connect students and young scientists with mentors. Several new awards, including the prestigious new DRS Gold Medal will be given this year.

With the introduction of new technologies including advancements in regenerative medicine, this year we will have several state-of-the-art lectures on topics related to integrating the art and science of swallowing with technology. This will be supplemented by presenting how real-life challenging cases were managed (or mismanaged) with audience participation under our newly introduced Clinical Conundrum sessions. Additional highlights of this year’s meeting are presentations on applying the principles of basic science to clinical practice and for those launching their career in dysphagia research; experts will talk on the principles of writing a successful grant application. ...
