      Columbia University Receives NIH Grant for Auditory Mechanics and Cochlear Amplification

      Columbia University Receives a 2020 NIH Grant for $428,832 for Auditory Mechanics and Cochlear Amplification. The principal investigator is Elizabeth Olson. Below is a summary of the proposed work. Sound input to the inner ear (cochlea) causes a frequency-segregated wave-pattern of sensory tissue motion that conveys sound information to the auditory neurons, leading to hearing. A currently untreatable aspect of hearing impairment is the deterioration of the cochlea's ability to sharply segregate sound by frequency. The cochlea's healthy frequency tuning is largely provided by the cochlear amplifier, an outer-hair-cell-driven, place-frequency-localized electromechanical engine that is both powerful and ...

      Postdoctoral researcher on OCT imaging of atherosclerosis

      Published Deadline Location 26 Feb 24 Mar Rotterdam JOB DESCRIPTION Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory and lipid-driven disease of the artery walls. In the coronary circulation, it is the main cause of ischemic heart disease and kills approximately 10 million people per year through myocardial infarctions and subsequent heart failure. Treatment of coronary artery disease by stent implantation can be guided by intravascular imaging with catheter-based optical coherence tomography (IV-OCT). In this project we will realize an OCT system that can perform spectroscopic imaging for identification of atherosclerotic lesion composition. Lipid-rich plaques are associated with worse long-term outcomes for patients. Knowledge ...
