      Professor Fuchs did a webinar back in January on the ear, hearing, and upcoming treatments for hearing loss. He talks a bit about genetic deafness and how gene therapy can address it. He also seems pretty positive about hair cell regeneration as being a thing. I just skimmed through it, but looks really informative.

      Fuchs briefly mentioned that his colleagues are looking at hair cell regeneration via support cell transdifferentiation I think, going by what was said on the slide.

      Wasn't this Audion's method and they didn't have much success with it?
