Researchers regenerate inner ear hair cells via the Notch pathway to restore hearing.

Sensory hair cell loss is the major cause of hearing loss and balance disorders. The postnatal mammalian inner ear harbors progenitor cells which have the potential for hair cell regeneration and hearing recovery, but the mechanisms that control their proliferation and hair cell regeneration are yet to be determined. Now scientists from the Harvard Medical School and Fudan University have
