We are an auditory neuroscience laboratory dedicated to improving diagnostics, prognostics, and therapeutics for deafness. We are focused on the inner ear because the majority of hearing loss originates in the inner ear. Our approach is interdisciplinary and combines tools of systems neuroscience with molecular biology, optics, and biotechnology in animal models and humans. Our laboratory is part of the Eaton-Peabody Laboratories, the world's largest research center for the study of hearing and deafness. We are located at Massachusetts Eye and Ear, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School adjacent to Massachusetts General Hospital. Our lab sits in the historic Beacon Hill district of Boston, within walking distance of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Broad and Whitehead Institutes. Our laboratory is home to an international group of predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees affiliated with Harvard, MIT, and a number of academic medical centers in Europe, Asia, and North and South America.
