The Center for Hearing Research at Boys Town National Research Hospital is a multi-disciplinary group of independent research laboratories, each directed by a faculty-level scientist. These laboratories are located within the East Campus of Boys Town National Research Hospital as well as in the adjacent Lied Learning and Technology Center. Research conducted in the center spans a diverse range of basic and translational interest areas. Researchers in the Center for Hearing Research often work closely with clinical colleagues in the
Center for Audiology to directly contribute to patient care.
The goals of the center are to support basic research efforts aimed at understanding hearing, to promote translational clinical hearing research, and to train early-stage hearing scientists. Activities in the center receive major support from the National Institutes of Health and other sources of external funding.
