Northwestern Medicine Awarded More Than $84 Million For Chronic Rhinosinusitis Research

Sinus and Allergy Center receives NIH-supported research grant to help advance development of new treatments

Northwestern Memorial HealthCare

CHICAGO The Northwestern Medicine® Sinus and Allergy Center has received a grant for more than $8.4 million from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to help advance the understanding of chronic rhinosinusitis and the development of new methods for its treatment over the next five years. The grant will fund research by the newly formed Chronic Rhinosinusitis Integrative Studies Program , which is comprised of research groups from Northwestern Medicine, The University of Chicago and Geisinger Health System.

CRS is an often debilitating condition that causes pain and congestion in the sinuses due to inflammation from an infection or other irritants that lasts anywhere from more than 12 weeks to several years. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention nearly 30 million Americans suffer from CRS and approximately $6 billion in healthcare costs can be attributed to its treatment annually.

The program’s research will aim to better understand the epidemiology, genetics and pathogenesis of CRS, most of which remain unknown, with the goal that it will ultimately lead to strategies for the development of new, more effective treatment options.
