Rhinology & Skull Base Lab (Alt Lab)
The Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery research program is a unique, truly translational bedside-bench-bedside program that is involved in improving treatment outcomes for his patients in rhinology and skull base surgery.
The goal of the Deans laboratory is to understand the development of Planar Polarity, a unique aspect of biological structure manifest by the polarized organization of cellular components within the plane of an epithelium.
The Park Lab is a unique, truly translational bench to bedside program dedicated to treat cytomegalovirus (CMV). The clinical branch is focused on the role of valganciclovir for congenitally infected (cCMV) infants with isolated sensorineural hearing loss. We are conducting an NIH funded multi-institutional clinical trial to address this question (ValEAR CMV trial). Our laboratory is particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying CMV induced hearing loss.
