Harvard researchers regenerate sound-sensing cells of mice with hearing damage

February 21, 2014

Harvard stem cell scientists have made an unexpected and potentially useful discovery that the sound-sensing cells of the mammalian ear—called hair cells--can be replaced, at least at low levels. Despite years of evidence indicating that ear sensory cells do not regenerate if lost, new research from the laboratory of Read more about Harvard researchers regenerate sound-sensing cells of mice with hearing damage
