Current Research and Scholarly Interests Active Wnt signaling maintains somatic stem cells in many organ systems. Using Wnt target genes as markers, we have characterized distinct cell populations with stem cell behavior in the inner ear, an organ thought to be terminally differentiated. Ongoing work focuses on delineating the developing significance of these putative stem/progenitor cells and their behavior after damage.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests The role of oncoproteins in cancer and development; molecular and cellular biology of hematologic malignancies; targeted molecular therapies of cancer.
Deborah E. Addicott - John A. Kriewall and Elizabeth A. Haehl Family Professor in Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests extend from hypothesis-driven studies in biochemistry and cell biology to discovery-driven interests in proteomics and systems biology to clinical treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia of children, and pediatric palliative care.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hearing loss can begin at any age and tends to progress. Ultimately, this may lead to deafness. Our research team seeks to understand the mechanisms of progressive hearing loss, to develop better techniques of diagnosing the cause of hearing loss in individual patients, and to optimize outcomes after cochlear implantation. We perform translational research using animal models of hearing loss and clinical research in both adult and pediatric patients to accomplish our goals.
