Most audiologists are familiar with genomics, but they may be unaware of unprecedented advances in genomic technologies that are changing the healthcare landscape. Progress has been so rapid in fields like cancer and pharmacogenomics that the recently unimaginable is now routine clinical practice. In this presentation, we will review advances in genomic hearing loss research, including genes, phenotypes and underlying mechanisms identified by our interdisciplinary team. Finally, we will discuss how these breakthroughs are moving research toward clinical solutions for patients with hearing loss, with new opportunities for audiologists in this genomics-era of personalized health care.
