Keck Futures Initiative Grant to Study Cochlear Implant Children

The National Academy of Sciences announced that Phillip M. Gilley, a postdoctoral researcher in University of Colorado - Boulder's speech, language and hearing sciences department, and Arizona State University collaborator Michael F. Dorman, are one of 16 projects selected to receive the highly competitive Keck Futures Initiative grants, which support interdisciplinary research on "smart" prosthetics such as cochlear hearing implants. They aim to develop clinically useful and less invasive ways of studying the brain activity of children who wear cochlear implants.
