Cell Physiology Laboratory
More than 28 million people in
the United States are deaf or hard of hearing and about two
million are impaired by dizziness or have difficulties with
balance. Research in Dr. Wangemann’s laboratory centers around
fluid regulation and blood flow control in the inner ear. A
detailed understanding of the inner ear is a necessary
prerequisite to finding cures for auditory and vestibular
disorders in humans and animals.
Dr. Wangemann is recognized nationally and internationally for her contributions to the fields of otology, epithelial physiology and microvascular biology. She has published over 50 peer-reviewed papers in journals such as Journal of Membrane Biology, Hearing Research and American Journal of Physiology and contributed numerous invited chapters. Dr. Wangemann is invited to speak before national and international scientific audiences on a regular basis. Since 1988, more than 15 students and postdoctoral fellows have trained with Dr. Wangemann. She has been awarded over 3.3 million dollars in research funding from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders of the National Institute of Health.
