HRC Seminar with Konstantina Stankovic

Konstantina Stankovic, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Otology and Laryngology, Harvard Medical School

Vistas in Neurotologic Research: From Biologic Batteries to Biomarkers

Abstract:

In this talk, we first review our recent collaborative work on powering electronics by the ear without affecting hearing.  Next, we discuss our ongoing work on optical imaging of the inner ear for cellular-level diagnosis and therapy.  We conclude by our research on discovery of biomarkers in cochlear fluids and tissues using high throughput technologies.

Bio:

Konstantina Stankovic, MD, PhD is an auditory neuroscientist and a practicing neurotologic surgeon at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.  She studied at MIT (BS and PhD degrees) and Harvard (MD degree, postdoctoral fellowship, residency in otolaryngology - head and neck surgery, and clinical fellowship in neurotology). Her present research program is cross disciplinary, and she combines tools of systems neuroscience with molecular, genetic and genomic studies in mice and humans to improve diagnostics and therapeutics for sensorineural hearing loss.
