  1. Summer Program in Genetics for Audiology Faculty
    Kathleen Arnos; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..This project will be performed by a team of experienced geneticists. educators, evaluators and bioethicists to effectively accomplish the specific aims. ..
  2. Genetic Deafness in the Alumni of Gallaudet University
    Kathleen Arnos; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..This is a research opportunity, which is rapidly diminishing, as educational mainstreaming and the use of cochlear implants continue to erode the deaf culture, making matings between deaf partners less likely in the future. ..
