“Let us give thanks to seeking spirits, to those with initiative, who raise questions of interest, stimulate active researches, provoke oppositions, because in a word, science gains and humanity applauds.”
~ Prosper Méniere, 1861
About the Prosper Ménière Society:
Named after Prosper Ménière (1799-1862), the Prosper Ménière Society was founded in 1981 by the International Meniere’s Disease Research Institute (IMDRI) of the Colorado Otologic Research Center (CORC). The Society was reorganized in 1990 and moved to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, where it is presently. It is a 501(c)-3 non-profit organization.
The primary goal of the Prosper Ménière Society is to promote the academic dissemination and discussion of basic and clinical research data on Meniere’s disease and all aspects of inner ear dysfunction, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment. Its primary meeting, the International Symposium on Inner Ear Disorders, is held every other year and convenes a scholarly group of basic and clinical researchers from the fields of otolaryngology, otology/neurotology, neuroradiology, and audiology for a week-long continuing medical education program.
