The research in our lab focuses on auditory development and the underlining causes for hearing loss. Most of our studies are carried out using the animal models of the chinchilla and the mouse. Chinchillas are precocious animals and have a hearing range similar to humans. Mice are altricious and have a high frequency hearing range. Both animal models allow us to observe a range of hearing abilities with the added advantage of genetic modeling available in mice.
