The center trains medical students and residents in otolaryngology, and collaborates with colleagues from other OHSU departments as well as from research institutions around the world to study fundamental neurobiology of the auditory and vestibular system. Through its research collaborations, OHRC strives to understand how hearing pathologies occur, and to continue to develop and test new chemical, mechanical and electrical solutions for hearing problems.
