Biography

Dr. Holt's research focuses on hair cell physiology in the mouse inner ear. His lab uses transgenic, knock-out and knock-in mice as well as mice with naturally occurring mutations. He is interested in identifying genes and proteins necessary for normal hair cell function and why mutations in these genes cause hearing loss and vestibular disorders. He is particularly interested in the hair cell functions of sensory transduction, adaptation, generation and modulation of receptor potentials and synaptic transmission.
