Meeting on the Med 2022 | Developing gene therapies for GJB2 gene related hearing loss

Nawal Ouzren, Sensorion, Montpellier, France, describes ongoing research into developing gene therapies for patients with hearing loss due to mutations in the GJB2 gene. This form of hearing loss is the most common form of childhood deafness, and some forms of adult hearing loss can be attributed to certain mutations of the GJB2 gene. Current efforts include elucidating a suitable therapeutic candidate in animal models. This interview was conducted during Meeting on the Mediterranean 2022.
