The Center for Hearing and Deafness was originally established in 1988 for the purpose of studying the biological bases of hearing and deafness. Its laboratories have expanded and evolved substantially since their inception, and are staffed with faculty, post-doctoral fellows, research associates, volunteers, and students. The ongoing research is supported by state, federal, and private research grants. The laboratories provide a unique training environment for graduate students interested in hearing research. The laboratories include:

  • Acoustics Laboratory
  • Anatomy Laboratory
  • Audiology Laboratory
  • Physiology Laboratory
  • Cell/Organ Culture Laboratory
  • Evoked Response and Otoacoustic Emissions Laboratory
  • Clinical Hearing Research Lab
  • Molecular Biology Laboratory
  • Psychophysics Laboratory
