- ~10% population have detectable level of hearing loss. Our research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of hearing loss.
Our lab will identify molecules and pathways that regulate the morphogenesis and functions of sensory hair cells, the primary receptors for sound. Hopefully our research will provide new leads for the development of new therapeutic approaches for the treatment of some forms of hearing loss in future.
