How the Ear Hears, and What We Can Do About It
Tuesday, January 26, 2021 – 12:00pm – 1:00pm ET
About the program
Ever wondered exactly how your ears hear? Does more time using earbuds on your Zoom calls have you worried about hearing loss? Advances in cellular biology and genetics have helped define the molecular mechanisms by which sound is transduced and transmitted to the brain. With this expanding knowledge we can define the root causes of hearing loss, and so design therapeutic strategies. Join Dr. Paul Fuchs to learn about how refined prosthetics, gene therapy, and cellular regeneration are expanding future options for preventing loss or restoring hearing.
