Research Summary

Dr. Gray’s primary research interests include chronic rhinosinusitis and tumors of the nose, paranasal sinuses, and skull base. She has published several articles regarding the identification and treatment of patients with sinonasal and skull base tumors and continues to investigate the use of endoscopic sinus surgery in these patients. Her research considers the safety and outcomes for patients undergoing surgery for sinusitis and how these treatments impact long-term sinonasal quality of life. Dr. Gray also collaborates on a number of projects with Dr. Daniel Hamilos, an allergist-immunologist at MGH, pursuing basic science research in the area of innate mucosal immunity of the paranasal sinuses. As Director of the Harvard Otolaryngology Residency Program, Dr. Gray is also interested in innovations in residency education.
