        Chinese auditory science research has been less developed for decades. In PubMed, only about 2% articles of the hearing research are from China (using hearing or auditory as keywords). From 2011 to 2015, there were 54 related articles published in Nature, Science and Cell, but none of them was from China. Since the Chinese government implements “The Recruitment Program of Global Experts” in 2008, many top auditory scientists trained in the US, European Union and Japan go back to China and set their laboratories. This tremendously promotes the development of the basic hearing research in China. The exploring filed has extend from limited topics such as exploring disease mutations to hair cell regeneration, auditory nerve degeneration, genetics, cochlear mechanics, central signaling pathway, and psychoacoustics.

        This rapid progress calls for a nationwide conference which is specific for scientists and clinical experts to discuss their work, develop new ideas, and integrate experimental and theoretical studies. (The otological meetings also provides opportunities for scientists, but it is extremely limited.)

        We founded chinese hearing research conference three years ago, and hold the first meeting in Shenzhen, China on December 16-17, 2015. Over 80 experts attended the meeting, including guest keynote speakers from Stanford University, Emory University, and Creighton University. Then we hold the next meeting in Jinan, China on Oct 29-30, with more scientists joining in. Hot topics included, but not restricted to, ototoxic prevention, tinnitus and high-throughput mutation sequencing.

The 3rd Chinese Hearing Science Conference is going to be held in Nanjing, China,
by Nanjing University and Southeast University.

The conference invites over 50 domestic and international keynote speakers. This year’s meeting mainly focus on
    1) hair cell mechanical transduction,
    2) synaptic transmission and afferent/efferent signal,
    3) glia of the spiral ganglion neurons;
    4) Single-cell RNA-Sequencing;
    5) hair cell development and regeneration.





Nanjing New Era Hotel
Address: 251-1 Zhongshan Road, Nanjing, China
Tel: 86-25-86812222


This hotel nears Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital. It is especially good at Chinese food.
We’ve already made reservations for the invited keynote speakers.
After the meeting, we will arrange a sightseeing tour of Nanjing.

Dating back from the 3rd century CE, Nanjing served as the capital of various Chinese dynasties. Nanjing has a prominent place in Chinese history, and now it's the second largest city in the east China region after Shanghai.
