Hearing and Balance
In this this theme, we study the normal development and function of the vertebrate auditory and vestibular systems together with disease states. In vitro cell lines, human stem cells and in vivo animal models, including non-mammalian systems, are used to study a range of genetic forms of hearing loss and to explore potential regenerative therapies.
