School of Education faculty and students presented their bilingual research at the 14th Annual UCI Center for Hearing Research Symposium, held June 1 at the UCI Medical Education Building.
The Center for Hearing Research (CHR) at UC Irvine is a multidisciplinary group of scientists spanning eight Departments in five Schools, who are bound by a common interest in hearing research. The organization, which has been meeting informally since 1998, became a UCI Campus Center in 2005. The major goal CHR is to promote an understanding of hearing across all levels of biological organizations.
