Translational Hearing Center Shares October 2021 Newsletter

The Translational Hearing Center’s October 2021 newsletter is now online.

Hearing loss in infants and children results in delayed acquisition of listening and spoken language skills critical for academic achievement and maximal career trajectories. In the aging population, hearing loss and vestibular deficits without appropriate rehabilitation accelerates aging and cognitive decline.

The Translational Hearing Center is located at Creighton University, with nearby Boys Town National Research Hospital and the University of Nebraska Medical Center as institutional partners. It is an inter-departmental, inter-school and inter-institutional collaborative research environment open to all researchers at Creighton, BTNRH and UNMC developing strategies to preserve or restore hearing and vestibular function.

Translational Hearing Center is an NIH/NIGMS-funded Center of Biomedical Research Excellence with two specialized research cores, the Auditory and Vestibular Technology Core, and the Drug Discovery & Delivery Core, to assist researchers in meeting their research goals.
