Our Strategic Research Plan
Phase I – Discovery Research
Phase I will examine of which genes trigger the regeneration of hair cells in certain animals, as well as which genes in mammals prevent natural hair-cell regeneration or genes for regeneration therapies..
Phase II – Pathway Validation
Phase II utilizes genes identified in Phase I to trigger and explore pathways for hair cell regeneration in humans.
Phase III – Develop Therapies and Treatment Options
In Phase III, the HRP Consortium will partner with a pharmaceutical or other company to develop drugs that mimic the identified genes, resulting in a regenerative therapy.
