June 12, 2018 – Drs. Janet Helminski and Diane Wrisley were recognized as a new members of the prestigious Bárány Society in a ceremony in Sweden on Tuesday June 12th.

The Bárány Society, an international, interdisciplinary society, was founded in 1960 on the initiative of Dr. C.S. Hallpike and Professor C.O. Nylen to honor the memory of the late Robert Bárány. Professor Bárány’s 10-year tenure as professor of Otorhinolaryngology at the University of Uppsala, Sweden ended in 1936 upon his death. He was a professor at Uppsala University Faculty of Medicine from 1917 until 1936.

In 1915, Professor Barany was awarded the Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking work on the physiology and pathology of the vestibular system. The aim of the Bárány Society is to facilitate collaboration between a variety of disciplines, encompassing scientists, clinicians, and engineers engaged in vestibular otoneurological research and discovery. 

Drs. Helminski and Wrisley were honored as new members at a ceremony in the Uppsala Concert and Congress Hall in Uppsala, Sweden. Society membership is restricted to those who are active in otoneurology or vestibular research, have an academic degree in this or in a closely related field, or have the equivalent of an academic degree or professional or scientific experience in otoneurology or vestibular research.  Dr. Wrisley was unable to attend the ceremony.
