ERS Junior Members

The ERS Junior Members Board was founded in 2010 during the ERS congress in Geneva, in order to promote and support young Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) clinicians and researchers.

Our board members Aleksandra Mickielewicz and Caroline Huart were kind enough to be in charge of this important section. You will find one chosen article each month on the facebook page and official ERS webpage/subsection ERS juniors. If you know about a high-quality article which is worth sharing, feel free to contact us. See more on facebook.
