to Assist Research
Our research group has been involved in analyzing genetic deafness for more than 30 years. With support from the National Institutes of Health , we are participating in a worldwide effort to map and characterize the many different genes that can cause deafness.
Several types of families are particularly useful. These include:
2. Families in which there are two or more deaf siblings.
3. Extended families in which there are many deaf individuals.
4. Deaf couples with three or more children, all of whom are deaf.
