Section on Sensory Physiology and Biophysics

Angela Ballesteros, Ph.D., Acting Chief

Research Statement

The Section on Sensory Physiology and Biophysics focuses on the relationship between the mechanoelectrical transduction (MET) channel complex and sensory inner ear hair cell physiology. 

The lab's broad goal is to decipher the fundamental relationships between the MET apparatus and sensory hair cell homeostasis that underlie sensory hair cell death and survival to prevent hearing loss and balance disorders.
