UNDER-RESEARCHED AREAS OF FOCUS
Over the years, several areas of science have been under-researched and under-represented through traditional funding mechanisms.  To encourage additional research in these areas, we have defined four Under-Researched Areas of Focus in an effort to continually move the field forward. Learn more about the areas and how to apply for a project in one of these areas.

MEET THE RESEARCHERS
Jun Shen, Ph.D.
Brigham & Women's
Hospital
Knowing the genetic cause of hearing loss allows early diagnosis before the onset of noticeable symptoms. It also informs the choice of optimal management plans, and predicts risks for relatives including future babies.  Dr. Shen aims to identify novel hearing loss genes by studying three large families with hereditary hearing loss from an isolated population. The discovery of novel genes will increase knowledge, enable early diagnosis, and ultimately lead to improved patient care.
