Dr. Langmore is Emeritus Professor of Otolaryngology at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine. She is a clinician, teacher, and researcher. She has worked as a speech pathologist her entire career, and has worked extensively in aphasia, dysarthria, and dysphagia. She has worked in acute care, ICU, rehab, and outpatient settings, and with patients who have neurologic diseases, pulmonary conditions, and head and neck cancer. Dr. Langmore has made many significant contributions to the field of Speech Language Pathology, starting with the development of the FEES procedure in the 1980's.
She has altered the medical field's perception and management of aspiration pneumonia with her research in the 1990's, and has recently completed a multi-center NIH funded clinical trial evaluating the efficacy of electrical stimulation for dysphagia in head and neck cancer patients. Dr. Langmore was awarded the ASHA Fellowship in 1998 and then ASHA Honors in 2012, and currently serves as the president of the Dysphagia Research Society (DRS). She has served on NIH review committees and is a reviewer or editor of a dozen medical journals.

Efficacy of Electrical Stimulation for Dysphagia in Head & Neck Cancer Patients
Role: Principal Investigator
This multi-institutional clinical trial will compare electrical stimulation plus aggressive swallowing exercise to sham electrical stimulation with aggressive swallow exercise to determine the efficacy of e-stim in treating dysphagia in patients who have received radiation therapy for head and neck cancer.

As outgrowths of this research, I am collaborating with several faculty here at BMC to determine how we can best predict and prevent dysphagia in patients undergoing treatment for head & neck cancer.
