Academy Research Conference (ARC): Genetics and Hearing Loss

April 18, 2018   |   Organized by: American Academy of Audiology (ASA)

Description

Date/Time: April 18, 2018

Location: Omni Nashville, Nashville, Tennessee

Description: Hearing loss is the most common congenital sensory impairment and birth defect. It has been well established that genetics plays an integral role in more than half of congenital hearing losses. Given the strong relationship between genetics and hearing loss in audiological practice, the Academy continues its commitment to providing audiologists the latest on genetics research as it relates to hearing impairment in clinical practice through the annual Academy Research Conference (ARC).

This one-day translational conference is chaired by Kathleen Arnos, PhD, who has assembled a world-renowned lineup of leading researchers to present their latest findings.

  • Kelley Dodson, MD, Pediatric Otolaryngologist, Virginia Commonwealth University - Genetic Associations with Vestibular Disorders and Unilateral Hearing Loss

  • Marci Lesperance, MD, Pediatric Otolaryngologist, University of Michigan - The Basics of Genetics for the Clinician

  • Lawrence Lustig, MD, Otolaryngologist and Neurotologist, Columbia University Medical Center - Age-Related Hearing Loss and Noise-Induced Hearing Loss-Old Problems and New Paradigms

  • Cynthia Morton, PhD, Medical Geneticist, Brigham & Women's Hospital, Harvard University - From Etiologic Diagnoses to Personalized Therapies for Hearing Loss

  • Arti Pandya, MD, Pediatric Clinical Geneticist, University of North Carolina - Genetic Testing and Counseling in the Era of Precision Medicine

ARC Poster Submission & Scholarship Information

Deadline to submit: December 11, 2017

Limit: Two (2) submissions per lead author
