Bionic Ear Delivers DNA To Regrow Auditory Nerve Cells

The next generation of bionic ear technology is a step closer to reality, with researchers at UNSW Australia using the cochlear implant itself to deliver DNA to stimulate the regrowth of auditory nerve cells. Professor Gary Housley is leading the development of the technique, which promises to significantly improve the hearing experience of people requiring a cochlear implant.
