Research scientists in Boston Children’s Hospital Department of Otolaryngology are working to develop biological treatments for deafness. The laboratory of Drs. Jeffrey R. Holt and Gwenaelle Geleoc have ongoing research projects that focus on development of gene therapy strategies for treatment of genetic deafness and development of stem cell therapies for treatment of congenital and acquired forms of deafness. Although these biological strategies hold great promise, they are still under development. As such, the Cochlear Implant Program is the best strategy for hearing restoration that is currently available.

To learn more about these research activities please contact our clinic or speak to your doctor at your next visit.
