However, hair cells are vulnerable to a number of insults, including noise, blast, aging, and traumatic brain injury. Adult mammalian hair cell loss is usually irreversible, causing permanent hearing loss and other inner ear disorders. Currently, there are no biological approaches to replenish human hair cells. The long-term goal of this project is...
