Dr. Tarang received her graduate training in Immunology at the Banaras Hindu University, India. Her research interests include Hair Cell Regeneration; Hearing Loss; Noise-Induced Hearing Loss; Ototoxicity. Her long term research goal is to develop therapeutic interventions to prevent hearing loss and restore lost hearing. To this date, no pharmaceutical drugs have been effective in restoring auditory function after HCs are lost. This fact fuels our continuous search for alternative strategies to prevent and treat hearing loss. Meet the rest of 2014 Emerging Researchers.
 
Hearing Health Foundation's Hearing Restoration Project (HRP) scientist, Stefan Heller, was published in Cell Reports on June 9, 2015. Heller's lab identified patterns of gene expression that my determine whether the ear's inner pillar cells can give rise to new hair cells, which are key to hearing. This discovery could lead to new ways of evaluating, in animal models, experimental drug treatments intended to prevent hearing loss or restore hearing. Learn more about the HRP
Heller's research and the path to a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus.
 
 
Help us change the course of hearing research and find a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus! Hearing Health Foundation’s “Name a Research Grant” program enables donors to name and fund a specific research grant in their name or in honor or memory of a loved one.
 
We're currently planning for our 2016 grant cycle. If you're interested in naming a research grant in any discipline within the hearing and balance space, such as Usher Syndrome, hyperacusis, stria, or tinnitus, please contact development@hhf.org
 
Chill Kechil is our latest Les Paul Ambassador, helping to educate musicians and others about the risks of noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus. In a blog and our Spring 2015 magazine, the New Jersey-based DJ and composer describes how he has managed his hearing loss while building a career in the music industry. Chill Kechil is donating a portion of his music and apparel proceeds to Hearing Health Foundation. Support HHF and enjoy his music at

Summer is full of fun and also a lot of noise. So the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) and Hearing Health Foundation are encouraging people of all ages to pack earplugs along with the sunscreen and to follow 6 easy tips for protecting their hearing this summer.
 
 
Many of us go about life enjoying the symphony of sounds from birds singing in the trees to your favorite band rockin' out at a local music venue. These as well as other sounds give us great pleasure. But extensive exposure to sounds that might not seem very loud may in fact result in long term damage to your hearing.
