Workshop and presentations

Workshop at IEB 2014

The NANOCI Consortium had been invited to present its activities at the 51st Inner Ear Biology Workshop (IEB 2014) which was held at The Edge, the Conference Centre of the University of Sheffield, from 31 August to 2 September 2014.

The Workshop programme covered a wide range of topics in inner ear research, ranging from sensory cell physiology to central pathway biology, and including regeneration, development and cellular biology. It focussed on translational developments, aiming to bridge the gap between basic science and its clinical application. Detailed information on the workshop is available online and in the Programme and Abstract Booklet.

As it had become traditional for this event, the workshop was preceded by a one-day translational Symposium on 31 August introducing the latest developments in cochlear implantation and the future scope of the technology where NANOCI was presented.
