Open House at the Mass. General Hospital Voice Center
Tuesday, June 27, 6:30 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
The Center for Laryngeal Surgery and Voice Rehabilitation at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH Voice Center) brings together an interdisciplinary group of clinicians and scientists to integrate state-of-the-art clinical care with translational research in laryngeal surgery and voice disorders. The MGH Voice Center has a highly integrated combination of clinical and research facilities, including the Clinical Voice Research Laboratories and Laryngeal Surgery Research Laboratories.
During the Open House, attendees will have the opportunity to tour the Center’s main outpatient and clinical research facility and to learn about current research programs, e.g., advanced laryngeal imaging, ambulatory voice monitoring/biofeedback, vocal system modeling, studies of vocal hyperfunction, etc. Collaborators from Boston University (Dr. Cara Stepp), MIT Lincoln Laboratory (Dr. Thomas Quatieri), and Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Dr. Matías Zañartu) will also be on hand to discuss joint research projects.
