SAVE THE DATE! 3rd Annual Knowles Hearing Center Symposium

October 12, 2012, Evanston Campus

The Knowles Hearing Center at Northwestern University is sponsoring a Symposium entitled "Translational Research: Applications to Hearing Loss". The goal of this symposium is to update and inform faculty and students, clinicians and researchers, about the latest translational research in hearing loss.  Such research includes the development and refinement of prostheses, assistive listening devices, testing instrumentation and clinical protocols, as well as the discovery of practical applications of cellular and molecular biology.  Of special importance to NUCATS, each speaker will not only talk about their research but also relate their personal stories about the challenges and rewards experienced during the process of getting innovations to market.  Thus, the symposium will keep members of the NUCATS community abreast of translational research related to the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss and inform them how to participate in bringing research to its practical use for patient benefit.
