Jack Vernon Endowed Fund for Faculty Excellence in Hearing Research

Jack Vernon

Jack Vernon, Ph.D. dedicated his life to solving the real problems of hearing. As a founding member of OHSU's Kresge Hearing Research Laboratory, he always believed the key was to combine the insights of basic research with compassionate patient care in one place. Under his leadership, the Kresge laboratory evolved into the Oregon Hearing Research Center. The OHRC has blossomed into an internationally renowned laboratory that is today poised to become the world's leading center for hearing research, the treatment of hearing disorders, and the prevention of hearing loss.

If you would like to help continue Dr Vernon's research, and impact on hearing problems, please contribute to the Jack Vernon Endowed Fund for Faculty Excellence in Hearing Research.
