Update on the Development of Regenerative Therapies for Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Recorded March 26, 2015 at AudiologyNOW 2015

Duration: 1 hour

Presenter: Cynthia Chow, BS

CEUs: .1

Who Should Attend: Audiologists and Future Audiologists

Instructional Level: Introductory
Program Focus:

Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:

  1. Describe the general approaches being investigated in pursuit of regenerative therapies for sensorineural hearing loss and be able to provide patients with this information when requested.
  2. Identify advantages and disadvantages of these regenerative approaches for sensorineural hearing loss.
  3. Summarize the current state of knowledge and recognize the most critical challenges in the field of regenerative medical therapies for sensorineural hearing loss.

Description: A number of approaches are being actively pursued in effort to develop novel treatments for sensorineural hearing loss. Significant progress has been made in recent years and there are currently plans for a number of clinical trials based upon regenerative approaches to restore hearing in humans. The goal of this eAudiology Web seminar is to describe the different approaches being taken in the pursuit of regenerative therapies for hearing loss and to present this in a coherent manner useful to practicing audiologists.

Cynthia Chow, BS is an AuD/PhD candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her interests include inner ear development, genetics, auditory processing and cochlear hair cell regeneration. The focus of Ms. Chow's research is on the generation of inner ear hair cells from stem cells and to explore novel therapies for hearing loss.
