Translational Research

HRC’s translational research directs scientific investigation toward the advancement of medicine, clinical applications, and new technologies related to speech and hearing. One example is molecular research in otolaryngology involving the development and regeneration of sensory hair cells of the cochlea. This research has the potential to reverse the loss of cochlear hair cells, a common cause of hearing loss. Additional examples include research leading to advances in automatic speech recognition and in signal processing techniques for the measurement of brain signals, and advances in audiology and medical devices such as hearing aids and cochlear implants.
