Current Research and Scholarly Interests Many adult organs tune their functional capacity to variable levels of physiologic demand. Adaptive organ resizing breaks the allometry of the body plan that was established during development, suggesting that it occurs through different mechanisms. Emerging evidence points to stem cells as key players in these mechanisms. We use the Drosophila midgut, a stem-cell based organ analogous to the vertebrate small intestine, as a simple model to uncover the rules that govern adaptive remodeling.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hearing loss can begin at any age and tends to progress. Ultimately, this may lead to deafness. Our research team seeks to understand the mechanisms of progressive hearing loss, to develop better techniques of diagnosing the cause of hearing loss in individual patients, and to optimize outcomes after cochlear implantation. We perform translational research using animal models of hearing loss and clinical research in both adult and pediatric patients to accomplish our goals.
