The challenge in auditory science is to determine how a pathogenic variant in a gene or regulatory element can cause the entire auditory system to fail. Our group is identifying the genes that lead to hearing loss and studying how regulation of gene expression govern the pathways that determine inner ear function. We are also examining how alterations in regulation, on a genetic and epigenetic level, contribute to the pathology of deafness.
