The 2023Academy Research Conference (ARC) was held on October 27, as a live, virtual event.  The conference is now available as a recorded, on-demand product available for registration.  Registration remains open now through January 14, 2024. All registrants will have access to archives until the end of day, January 15, 2024.

The fields of audiology and hearing science are vastly advancing. Nearly a quarter of Americans older than 12 years of age are estimated to have some degree of hearing loss. As most older adults will experience hearing loss, inner-ear regeneration and cell therapies would significantly expand remediation options beyond amplification devices alone.

Research indicates that inner-ear protective and regenerative therapies are promising and could lead to significant changes in audiological management. Multiple therapeutics are currently under evaluation in animal models and human clinical trials, with the potential for new medicines thus on the horizon.

This virtual conference aims to describe the current state of these therapies and provide future expectations for clinicians providing hearing-related services.

Funding for this conference was made possible by grant 1R13DC020893-01 from National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. 

The Academy Research Conference (ARC) 2023 program is now available as on on-demand product worth 0.75 AAA CEUs. The registrants for the AM Sessions may obtain 0.35 AAA CEUs, and registrants for the PM sessions may obtain 0.40 AAA CEUs; registrants for the entire conference will receive 0.75 AAA CEUs. Following your viewing of the recorded programs, you must return to the event in your eAudiology account and complete the evaluation and assessment (scoring 80% or better) to earn your certificate.
