2017 Callier Prize Awarded to Sharon Kujawa for Research on Hidden Hearing Loss

Sharon G. Kujawa, an auditory neuroscientist who studies how aging and noise exposure can impact hearing, has been selected to receive the biennial Callier Prize in Communication Disorders for her research into the connections between the hair cells and the nerve fibers (synapses) that are most vulnerable—what is now being referred to as “hidden hearing loss.”
