In July, Creative Biolabs and Dr. Jeffrey R. Holt presented a webinar on “Development of Gene Therapy for Genetic Hearing Loss”. A recording of this live webinar is now available to all.

New York, USA – August 11, 2022 – On July 21, Creative Biolabs hosted the latest in the gene therapy webinar series, titled “Development of Gene Therapy for Genetic Hearing Loss“. The inspiring lecture given by the speaker, Dr. Jeffrey R. Holt, and the brilliant questions raised by the audiences comprised this creditable webinar, and now the webinar recording video is available to all.

Dr. Jeffrey R. Holt earned his doctorate from the Department of Physiology at the University of Rochester, and then went on to a post-doctoral position in the Neurobiology Department at Harvard Medical School. He is currently a Professor in the Departments of Otolaryngology and Neurology in the F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center, and a member of the Harvard Medical School, Program in Neuroscience and the Harvard/MIT Program in Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology.

During this webinar, Dr. Jeffrey firstly introduced current situation of hearing loss worldwide. Then, in the first part of his sharing, he talked about the designed gene replacement therapy using synthetic adeno-associated viral vectors to deliver the coding sequence for TMC 1 or 2 into sensory hair cells of mice with hearing and balance deficits due to mutations in TMC1 and closely related TMC2. In the second part of this webinar, he explained his research on STRC mutations, the second most common cause of genetic hearing loss-dual vector delivery of STRC restores STRC expression and hair bundle morphology, as well as DPOAE and ABR thresholds, and STRC gene therapy is highly potential to benefit millions of patients.

“It was fantastic to host so many interested people, and receive so many great questions for the Q&A. We would like to give the warmest thanks to Dr. Jeffrey for such a great talk, and we also hope all of our attendees had a great time,” said Bella Smith, the Business Development Executive at Creative Biolabs.
