Kenneth Johnson, Ph.D.

Associate ProfessorThe Jackson Laboratory

Ken Johnson, Ph.D., studies the genetics of hearing impairment in mice. He and his research team identify mutations causing congenital or age-related hearing loss and characterize the underlying inner ear pathologies. These studies improve our understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in the auditory process and provide mouse models of homologous human hearing disorders.
