Dr. Griffith received his B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of California, Davis. He received his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from Yale University. He completed an Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residency at the University of Michigan, where he also received fellowship training in the laboratory of Dr. Miriam Meisler in the Department of Human Genetics.

He joined the Intramural Research Program of NIDCD as a Senior Staff Fellow where he received additional training with Dr. Thomas Friedman in the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics. He has been a member of the Senior Medical Staff of the NIH Clinical Center since 1998, an independent Investigator since 2000 and Director of the NIDCD Division of Intramural Research since 2009.

His research interest is genetic disorders affecting hearing and balance. His laboratory currently focuses on two projects: (1) hearing loss associated with enlargement of the vestibular aqueduct, and (2) autosomal dominant nonsyndromic hearing loss DFNA34 and the role of innate immunity in disorders of hearing and balance.
