Sharon Kujawa

Sharon G. Kujawa, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Otology and Laryngology, Harvard Medical School and Director of the Department of Audiology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston. Current work in the Kujawa laboratory focuses on understanding how noise exposure alters the way ears and hearing age, how vulnerability to noise-induced and age-related compromise is shaped by genetic background, and how these processes can be manipulated pharmacologically to reveal mechanisms or for treatment or prevention. She regularly participates in efforts to translate laboratory advances into improved clinical diagnosis and treatment.
