Elisabeth Erickson-DiRenzo and Eben Rosenthal increase the breadth of research areas in the department to include treatments of voice disorders and better diagnostic imaging for cancer surgery.  At the core of our research endeavor are seven laboratories that investigate hearing and balance with the shared goal of advancing diagnosis and ultimately treatment of hearing loss and balance disorders (see also https://hearinglosscure.stanford.edu).  Research among these laboratories stretches from molecular/cell biology and animal physiology to applied projects such as novel imaging technologies for better surgical planning in human cochlear implant patients.
