Brief description Swallowing has complex physiology and swallowing problems (dysphagia) result in poor nutrition and death due to complications of aspiration. A/Prof Omari has invented a new method to assess swallowing function. The studies proposed will change how dysphagia is diagnosed and managed. The research follows three streams: (A) studies in large patient cohorts in whom a better diagnosis is needed (e.g. stroke), (B) studies of therapies and interventions and (C) studies of swallowing biomechanics.
