About Someya Lab

The Someya Lab studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie sex differences in hearing and cochlear aging in the Departments of Physiology and Aging & Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at the University of Florida. We use mice as a model system because the mouse inner ear is anatomically similar to that of human and the homologies between the mouse and human genomes are well-established.

We are also actively engaged in training the next generation of scientists at the undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral level. In addition to the UF Institute on Aging, the Someya lab is affiliated with several departments and centers on campus, including the Department of Speech, Languages and Hearing Sciences and the Claude D. Pepper Older American Independence Center.

Work in our lab is generously supported by University of Florida, the National Institutes on Deafness and Communication Disorders, the National Institute on Aging, and the American Cancer Society.
