Our clinical research in Audiology spans a broad range of topics related to patient outcomes and evaluation of new diagnostic technologies. Clinical research collaborators include Drs. Stephen Cass, Samuel Gubbels, and Herman Jenkins of Otolaryngology. One current clinical project underway is a clinical trial assessment of the Children’s English and Spanish Speech Perception Test. We also have several projects underway examining hearing aid and cochlear implant outcomes in the clinical population.
We approach research from a broad collaborative framework. This framework encompasses studies of hearing aid signal processing, cognitive processing, infant speech discrimination, and clinical research.
