Project

Genetic and functional studies for GRM7 and GRHL2, two genes for Age-Related Hearing Impairment.

Age-Related Hearing Impairment (ARHI), the most prevalent sensory impairment in the elderly, is a complex disease caused by environmental and genetic factors. Our laboratory recently identified two susceptibility genes for ARHI, GRHL2 and GRM7. The current project will elaborate the role of these two genes for the development of ARHI by genetic and functional studies.
