Trainee Kathleen Gwilliam Receives F31

Kathleen Gwilliam is a PhD Candidate in the laboratory of Dr. Ronna Hertzano at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. The research supported by her  F31 award is entitled A Triple Line of Defense: The Role of the Group 1 RFX Transcription Factors in the Inner Ear. The research will focus on understanding the roles of group-1 RFX transcription factors and their target genes in hair cell development of the cochlea and vestibule, as recent data suggest a critical role for the group-1 RFX transcription factors in hair cell development and maturation.


Meg Cychosz is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences. She employs computational modeling and digital signal processing to evaluate how the auditory environment interacts with speech development in children from a variety of language backgrounds, including children with cochlear implants. 

C-CEBH T32 RENEWED FOR 2021-2026

In response to an emerging need for scientists who can bring innovative skills and perspectives to problems in the hearing sciences, we continue to build upon our well established Training Program in Comparative and Evolutionary Biology of Hearing at the University of Maryland, College Park. The 19 Core Faculty in our group bring an extraordinarily broad range of expertise, from cellular and molecular biology to systems neuroscience, while also demonstrating a successful track record in training students.
