      University of Southern California Receives a NIH Grant for Mechanisms of Cochlear Synaptopathy After Noise or Blast Trauma

      University of Southern California Receives a 2020 NIH Grant for $710,479 for Mechanisms of Cochlear Synaptopathy After Noise or Blast Trauma. The principal investigator is John Oghalai. Below is a summary of the proposed work. About 15% of Americans have hearing loss due to noise exposure. The classical explanation is trauma to the cochlear hair cells. An additional mechanism of noise-induced hearing loss is cochlear synaptopathy. There are no effective treatments used clinically to prevent hearing loss via either mechanism after traumatic noise exposure. Recently, we identified that endolymphatic hydrops occurs after blast or noise trauma, and that endolymphatic ...

      Baylor College of Medicine Receives a 2020 NIH Grant for $541,789 for In Vivo Analysis of Mammalian Fertilization. The principal investigator is Irina Larina. Below is a summary of the proposed work. Estrous cycle, ovulation, fertilization, and pre-implantation pregnancy are fundamental reproductive processes of clinical importance. While research has shed light on the cellular and molecular mechanisms mediating these events, much of these data are derived from static histological analysis, low-resolution visualizations, and studies of invertebrate models (e.g. sea urchin). Therefore, any conclusions regarding mammalian fertilization, which takes place deep inside the body, are extrapolated and do not ...
