Dr. Lisa Cunningham will talk about her research in basic, translational, and clinical studies on sensory hair cell degeneration and hearing loss in the mature inner ear, and her work in developing therapeutic strategies to safeguard hearing. Hair cells in the ear are susceptible to death from a variety of insults, including aging, noise exposure, and certain “ototoxic” medications used clinically to treat life-threatening diseases such as cancer and bacterial infections.

Dr. Cunningham is the Scientific Director of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), one of the 27 institutes that comprise the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Sponsored by the SMC Associates and the SMC Earth Science, Life Sciences, and Physical Sciences departments.
