Research in the Holt /Géléoc Lab is focused on the physiology and molecular substrates of inner ear function and dysfunction. We aim to understand how the sensory cells and neurons in the normal inner ear function. We want to identify the molecular components required for sensory function and identify why mutations in those molecules lead to dysfunction. Our long term goal is to use this information to help design of novel strategies aimed at restoring inner ear function.
The lab is staffed by a dynamic team of scientists including undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and lab technicians. The tabs above include a description of our research projects, a list of recent publications, brief biographies of current lab members as well as a list of former members, images of inner ear tissue, a list of newsworthy items, various accolades for the lab and lab members, our financial support and links to external sites of interest.
