Ongoing research in our department spans the range of basic and clinical research from the molecular level to patient oriented diagnostic and rehabilitative research, as well as across the lifespan from children to aging adults. 

We are a major contributor to the research effort in communication sciences and disorders, as illustrated by our state-of-the art laboratories, the productive research of our students, faculty, and staff, and the significant level of internal and external research support. We also extend our research outside of our labs, actively engaging in outreach efforts in the local community.
