Seminar: “DNA damage and mitochondrial dysfunction in cochlear cell degeneration: towards hearing rescue” by Dr. Jing Wang

The seminar will be held on April 24 2017 at 3:00 pm in the Pagoda building at the Faculty of Medicine at the Autonomous University of Madrid. This seminar is organized by CSIC, the coordinator partner of TARGEAR.

Dr. Wang is an INSERM researcher at the Institute of Neuroscience at the University of Montpellier (France) where she currently leads the team “Degeneration and Therapies” ( 2-molecular-basis-of-age-related-hearing-loss). Her work focuses on the study of mechanisms that trigger hearing loss associated with aging, as well as the development of therapies that reverse this loss. Some of her main contributions appear below:
