NIDCD Director’s Seminar Series: Advancing the Science of Communication to Improve Lives

Dr. Tucci

NIDCD-supported research is leading to increasingly effective, evidence-based treatments for communication diseases and disorders that affect an ever-growing segment of the population. These remarkable advances in science, technology, and computing create unprecedented opportunities for knowledge discovery, clinical translation, and public health.

NIDCD Director Debara Tucci, M.D., M.S., M.B.A., hosts this seminar series featuring next-generation research that advances the science of hearing, balance, taste, smell, voice, speech, and language. Seminar topics are designed to align with the themes and priorities of the 2023-2027 NIDCD Strategic Plan, including innovations with the potential to improve the lives of people with hearing loss and other communication disorders.

The series of annual lectures is open to all NIH scientific and program staff, contractors, and trainees; the extramural community; and other interested groups and individuals. All lectures are webcast live and available for later viewing on the NIH videocast website. Check back soon for updates on speakers and topics for future seminars.
