We look forward to seeing our friends at the ARO Annual Mid-Winter Conference from Feb. 9-13 in Baltimore, MD. This is a great event to learn about and discuss current concepts of the function of normal and diseased states of the ear and other head and neck structures, recognize current controversies in research questions in auditory neuroscience and otolaryngology, and describe key research questions and promising areas of research in otolaryngology and auditory neuroscience.
The conference will begin with the President’s Symposium on Age-Related Hearing Loss; What we know and what we need to know to develop treatments. There are many challenges to getting to the point where someone with the first signs of hearing difficulties can go to a doctor, get a diagnosis of the primary problem, and come out with a medical treatment to stop further deterioration, but this will happen. The symposium includes a look at ageing processes in general, insights from human histopathology, steps towards diagnosis of the biology underlying hearing loss in individuals, approaches to delivering drugs and other agents to the inner ear, and finally two views from an industry perspective of developing therapeutics for deafness.
Young Investigators, don’t miss the mentorship sessions arranged throughout the meeting, or the opportunity to participate in the many special spARO events during the
meeting, for student and postdoc and other early-career ARO members.
There is a lot more going on at ARO this year, so visit the conference site to get the details.
