Dr. Germiller is an attending surgeon and director of clinical research in the Division of Otolaryngology. His research interests include hearing loss in children, disorders of inner ear and auditory nerve development, cochlear implantation, congenital abnormalities, and genetics of hearing disorders.
Dr. Krantz's lab identifies and characterizes the molecular etiology of syndromic and non-syndromic developmental disorders. He has identified genes for several genetic conditions (Cornelia de Lange Syndrome, CHOPS syndrome, Alagille syndrome, hearing loss) implicating critical molecular pathways in human disorders for the first time. He has been at the forefront of studying the integration of genomics into clinical settings.
