Royal Visit

19 February 2014

The UCL Ear Institute were thrilled to welcome HRH Prince Andrew The Duke Of York for a tour of their labs on Tuesday 11th February. Invited by Action On Hearing Loss, HRH met with the charity's Cheif Executive and Head of Biomedical Research as well as our Director Prof McAlpine and other leading scientists including Dan Jagger and Joerg Albert.

HRH learnt about the two of our current research projects that are funded by the charity, one which aims to explore the impact of loud noise on fruit flies, which share molecular and mechanistic overlap with hearing in vertebrates; and the other to map nerve fibers of the inner ear, which will enable future refinement of cochlear implants.
