The Mouse as an Instrument for Ear Research

This workshop provides a unique opportunity for established investigators and students to interact and exchange ideas regarding the use of new and developing technologies to study the ear of the mouse. One objective is to provide non-mouse researchers an introduction to the mouse through reviews, tutorials and hands-on workshops. Another objective is to provide state-of-the-art information to experienced investigators through research talks on new developments and special topics of current interest. Finally, meeting participants are provided an opportunity to communicate their research findings through podium and poster presentations.
