Santa Maria lab awarded R01 Grant

The NIDCD has awarded the Santa Maria Lab a 5 year R01 grant to explore hearing loss — why patients with chronic suppurative otitis media lose sensory hearing. This work grew out of their novel animal model where they discussed likely immunological mechanisms associated with hearing loss. Through the grant the lab hopes to understand the link between the infection in the ear and permanent hearing loss in the hopes of discovering a therapeutic target for preventing of treating chronic infectious related hearing loss.
