Dr. Anthony Peng-  ‘Observations During the Study of Hair Cell Mechanotransduction’

Dr. Anthony Peng, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. His talk was titled ‘Observations During the Study of Hair Cell Mechanotransduction’.

Dr. Anthony Peng is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. His lab is focused on studying the mechanisms of how the auditory sensory hair cells, the fastest mechanoreceptors in the body, transduce sound into electrical signals for the brain to process and interpret. To study the fast-mechanical responses of hair cells, Dr. Peng developed high-speed stimulators and high-speed imaging techniques to capture the kinetics of these exquisitely fast mechanoreceptors. Prior to starting his lab, Dr. Peng trained at Stanford University and in the Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology Program at Harvard and MIT.

This session was moderated by, Dr. Artur Indzhykulian.

When: Thursday, October 15th at 12:00 PM ET.

Dr. William Brownell- ‘From Sound to Action Potentials – A Tour of the Inner Ear’

Dr. William Brownell, Emeritus Professor at College of Medicine, speaks as the first presenter in the new ARO Seminar Series. His talk was titled ‘From Sound to Action Potentials – A Tour of the Inner Ear’.

Dr. Bill Brownell is professor emeritus at the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX where he held the Jake and Nina Kamin Chair of Otorhinolaryngology. Previously held appointments were at the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD. He spent two years (1965-1966) teaching science and mathematics in Nigeria with the United States Peace Corps between his undergraduate training in physics and graduate training in physiology at the University of Chicago, Chicago, IL. He is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and a past president of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology. His research focus is on the electromechanics of hearing.

This session was moderated by ARO President-Elect, Dr. John Oghalai.

When: Thursday, September 17th at 5PM CT
