New imaging of the inner ear...



The Bertarelli Program in Translational Neuroscience and Neuroengineering has supported researchers from École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and Harvard Medical School to develop new ways of imaging parts of the inner-ear. By helping medical professionals see these, until now, hidden parts of the ear, it is hoped that clinicians will be able to provide better diagnoses for patients that are hard-of-hearing.

Now in its second funding round, the Program focuses on supporting collaborative research projects at Harvard Medical School and EPFL bridge the gap between basic and translational neuroscience, support basic and clinical research, by creating stronger ties amongst scientists, engineers and clinicians, and by training the next generation of scientific leaders.

By working with two universities, one with special strength in engineering and technology and the other experienced at alleviating human suffering caused by disease, the Program helps advance cutting edge solutions to challenging medical problems.
