The Dysphagia Research Society (DRS) was established to serve researchers and clinicians from different areas of inquiry who share a research interest in normal and disordered swallowing and related functions. Its purposes are to enhance and encourage research in these areas, attract new investigators to the field and encourage interdisciplinary research, promote the dissemination of knowledge, provide a multidisciplinary forum for presenting research, and foster new methodologies and instrumentation in dysphagia research and its clinical applications. DRS holds an annual conference; see website for details. DRS also publishes a professional journal and a newsletter biannually.
