Title
(EN) METHOD FOR TREATING AND MODELLING HEARING LOSS
Abstract
(EN)

A method for treating hearing loss in a subject in need thereof is provided. The method includes providing a combination of transcription factors to induce generation of a hair cell-like cell, thereby treating the hearing loss in the subject. The generated hair cell-like cells exhibit characteristic of mature functional cells that is useful in cell replacement therapy for autologous transplantation.
