Research Activities

2007 – present Title: Development of Auditory Skills in Young Deaf Children with Bilateral Cochlear Implants
Principal Investigator: Christopher J. Danner
Co-Investigator: Loren J. Bartels
Status: ACTIVE
Western Internal Review Board (WIRB) Study Number: 1089169
The purpose of this research is to track the acquisition of listening and functional communicative skills in young deaf children who receive a cochlear implant in each ear at the same time (or separated by no more than six months). This information will help determine the benefits of receiving bilateral implants at an early age.

2005 – 2009 Title: HiResolution® Bionic Ear: Bilateral Benefit in Adult Users of the HiRes® 90K Bionic Ear System
Principal Investigator: Loren J. Bartels
Co-Investigator: Christopher J. Danner
Status: ACTIVE
University of South Florida IRB Study Number: 104069
The purpose of this clinical study is being conducted to look at the bilateral benefits of two Bionic Ears (one implant in each ear) and to look at the effect of the different sound-processing modes on bilateral benefit.

2005-2006 Title: Assessing Subjective Visual Vertical in Patients with Posterior Canal Lithiasis Before and After Canalith Repositioning with On Axis Yaw Rotation
Principal Investigator: Christopher J. Danner
Co-Investigator: John L. Dornhoffer
Status: PAST
The goal of this study is to develop a simple reproducible test that can effectively quantitate otolith function.

2003-2006 Title: Comprehensive Assessment of Motion Sickness and Neurovestibular Disorders

Total Award: $1,000,000
Our overall goal is to develop and implement a comprehensive assessment of all levels of the neuraxis in an effort to determine CNS deficits due to a provoked (e.g. rotation)or existing condition (e.g. balance disorder, tinnitus), and develop and assess strategies to restore those deficits.

2000-2001 Title: Developing Novel Methods of Gene Transfer in the Cochlea
Principal Investigator: Chris Danner
Status: PAST
Source of Funds: Internal Institutional Funding, National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) grant applied for but not awarded.
Grant Period: NIDCD grant applied for but not awarded

1999-2001 Title: The Role of Interferon Inducible Protein 10 (IP-10) in the Treatment of Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Principal Investigator: Chris Danner
Status: PAST
Source of Funds: Internal Institutional Funding, American Head and Neck Society grant applied for but not awarded
Grant Period: American Head and Neck Society grant applied for but not awarded
The objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of the transfected gene for IP-10 in modulating the vascularity and growth of tumors.

1999-2001 Title: Atrial Natriuretic Peptide and Meniere’s Diesease
Principle Investigator: Chris Danner
Status: PAST
Source of Funds: Internal Institutional Funding
Grant Period: No specific grant awarded
The objective of this project was to study the relationship of Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP) with fluid homeostasis in the inner ear. ANP binding sites were identified and up regulated.
