An article about Dr. Ratnanather's initiative to provide students with hearing loss the opportunity to do auditory research at Johns Hopkins. Our summer student Garrett Brown is part of the first cohort. See article here: https://www.bme.jhu.edu/news-events/news/stem-hear-first-cohort-of-students-with-hearing-loss-conducts-summer-research-at-johns-hopkins/

Dillan Villavisanis & Mark Scotto di Vetta graduated with bachelor's degrees, James Engel graduated with a masters degree, Dillan won the James West Fellowship from the Acoustical Society of America (and in April won the ASA DC chapter 2nd place Student Presentation Award), incoming postdoc Laurel Screven successfully defended her thesis, and two of Dr. Lauer's R01 grants were funded. Also, we are looking forward to having Naz (JHU STAR award winner), Omo, and new students Garrett Brown and Erin Young join us for summer research. Congratulations to everyone! Well done! Time for a little vacation...
The Lauer Lab will collaborate on a newly funded project to study hearing loss in a model of Fuchs Corneal Dystrophy with colleagues in the Wilmer Eye Institute
