Building upon the success of the 2003 and 2005 meetings, this meeting provides a unique opportunity for established investigators and students to interact and exchange ideas regarding the use of new and developing technologies to study the ear of the mouse. One objective is to provide non-mouse researchers an introduction to the mouse through reviews, tutorials, and hands-on workshops. Another objective is to provide state-of-the-art information to experienced investigators through research talks on new developments and special topics of current interest. Finally, meeting participants are provided an opportunity to communicate their research findings through podium and poster presentations.

Preliminary topic list:

RNAI application
Regeneration Stem Cell Replacement
Electrophysiology acoustic emissions
Free Radicals, from toxicity and noise
Eye Movement Recordings in Mice
Mouse Models of Otitis Media
Biomethods & Mouse Genetics
Emerging Tools: non-invasive and new approaches to imaging
