Academy Research Conference (ARC)
Genetics and Hearing Loss
April 18, 2018
Chair: Kathleen Arnos, PhD
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.
