Description: The Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series

As described by Helen Keller: "Blindness cuts us off from things, but deafness cuts us off from people," Hearing loss is a result of acquired events, such as infection, drugs, aging, environmental toxins and exposure to loud noises (ie BOOMBOX Events) and others. In rare cases, hearing loss results from congenital or inherited defects. With an aging population, hearing loss continues to increase dramatically.

For this next lecture we bring you two speakers who are investigating hearing loss from translational and genomic perspectives:

Andrew Griffith,MD, PhD, Scientific Director and Acting Deputy Director of the NIDCD, is expert in genetic disorders and innate immunity affecting hearing and balance

Shawn Burgess,PhD, Senior Investigator in the NHGRI, uses a systematic genetic approach with CRISPR and other techniques in zebrafish to understand hearing by knocking out all genes linked to human deafness, and investigating regeneration of hearing components.
