Member laboratories of the Center for Hearing and Balance work on topics ranging from molecular biology of sensory development and differentiation, to behavioral and clinical studies of normal and disrupted function.  Students from doctoral and masters programs in the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Arts and Sciences are welcome to pursue their theses in Center laboratories.  Postdoctoral fellows apply to individual labs according to their career goals.  Undergraduate students are welcome to contact Center laboratories if interested in obtaining academic credit for research.
