Faculty and Staff
The Oregon Hearing Research Center (OHRC) is comprised of the center director, primary faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and research staff. OHRC faculty are active in the scientific community and within OHSU, serving on NIH study sections, as editors for prestigious journals, and as members on university committees and councils in the national and international arenas. The department maintains close collaboration with the Vollum Institute, The VAMC's National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research, and the University of Washington-Seattle's Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center, and also has strong ties with national research foundations and groups including the Hearing Health Foundation and the Hearing Restoration Project.
The Oregon Hearing Research Center is one of the largest and most prominent hearing centers in the world. Our scientists are dedicated to exploring every possible cause and solution to hearing loss and continuing the legacy of our early leaders like Dr. Bob Brummett and Dr. Jack Vernon. Further, a number of our faculty personally live with hearing loss which further inspires them and drives them to find new cures and treatments.
