The National Temporal Bone, Hearing, and Balance Pathology Resource Registry, which is sponsored by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, promotes research into hearing and balance disorders through the study of the temporal bone and related brain structures. The registry maintains a computerized database of all U.S. temporal bone collections, disseminates information on temporal bone donation, enrolls individuals with hearing/balance disorders as temporal bone donors, educates professionals about temporal bone research, and conserves at-risk collections. Free searches of the registry’s database are available to interested otopathologic researchers. A professional/consumer newsletter, brochures/pamphlets, and online publications are available.
