Originally from Dublin, Ohio, Dr. Katie Phillips is a third year otolaryngology resident at Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School, with an interest in rhinology. Dr. Phillips' specific interest within rhinology is chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and its relationship with allergy. Her career plans include pursing a rhinology fellowship and subsequent academic career that will allow her to both treat and study CRS.
Dr. Phillips' background includes a history of allergy and rhinology research. During medical school at Ohio State University College of Medicine, she participated in both olfaction and asthma research. During residency, she has co-authored, with her research mentor Dr. Ahmad R. Sedaghat, a study examining the relationship between aeroallergen sensitization in patients with allergic rhinitis and the subsequent development of CRS. With this proposed project, she hopes to take the next step in this line of investigation by focusing on the impact of aeroallergen sensitivity and exposure on atopic CRS patients.
