Joint Biomed@TAU Research Hub Event

Developmental Biology, Membrane Communication & Remodelling, and Neurodevelopmental Disorders invites you to a lecture by:

 

Prof. Douglas J. Epstein, Ph.D.

Department of Genetics

University of Pennsylvania

 

Cochlear supporting cells require GAS2 for cytoskeletal architecture and hearing

 

Monday June 14 at 15:00

 

Join us virtually to hear about Prof. Epstein’s latest paper in Developmental Cell

 

Chen et al. describe how mutations in GAS2, encoding a microtubule associated protein, cause hearing loss in mice and humans. They show that microtubule bundle integrity is compromised in cochlear supporting cells from Gas2 mutants, causing defects in the amplification and propagation of sound waves in the cochlea.
