“Hearing: from the genetic dissection of molecular mechanisms towards a cure”


Christine Petit, Professor at College de France and Institut Pasteur, Director of the Hearing Institute, Paris, France

Professor Christine Petit is a specialist in genetics, and more specifically human genetics. She played a pioneering role in the discovery of the genes responsible for sensory disabilities in humans, more specifically hearing disorders. She has opened the field of hereditary deafness to genetic analysis and has identified a large number of genes responsible for these disorders. She is currently focusing on identifying the molecular pathogenesis of many genetic forms of deafness. Her work has been widely recognized with many awards including the Brain Prize and the Kavli Prize.
