Our goal is to identify genetic and epidemiologic factors that influence risk for otolaryngologic diseases, such as otitis media, hearing loss, vestibular disorders and obstructive sleep apnea/sleep-disordered breathing. Our studies are made possible through close collaboration with scientists and clinicians on campus and in multiple institutions within the US and the Americas, Asia, and Europe.
