Molecular Biology of Hearing and Deafness

The 10th Molecular Biology of Hearing and Deafness conference will highlight and discuss recent discoveries in the field: new genes involved in deafness and new pathways that underlie the development, function, repair and regeneration of the auditory system

There will be a strong focus on approaches, currently being developed, for treating or preventing deafness caused by noise, drugs and mutations.

Scientific sessions:

• Genetics of deafness
• Development of the auditory system
• Molecular basis of mechanotransduction
• Cochlear damage
• Repair and regeneration
• Molecular diagnostics
• Otologic disease
• Translational approaches to treatment
