Mark R. Muench

“Over the 20-odd years I’ve served on the AHRF Board, I’ve been astounded by the technological advancements we’ve seen in the medical community’s ability to treat hearing loss and other disorders of the inner ear. But there’s still a very long way to go. And I genuinely believe that AHRF continues to have a vital role to play in advancing research so we can better help people affected by these all-too-often life-altering conditions.”
