Research Interests

  • Dr. Vicky Sanchez is a clinician-scientist in the Department of Otolaryngology. She provides clinical services and leads research studies in the Auditory Rehabilitation & Clinical Trials Laboratory (ARCT Lab). The ARCT Lab is both federally and industry funded, and is a collaborative multi-investigator interprofessional lab. Vicky's research areas of interest are speech perception, auditory rehabilitation, evidence-based practice, and the effects of various disorders and interventions on the auditory and vestibular systems. Vicky's current projects include developing and evaluating novel approaches to treat acquired forms of hearing loss by taking a translational pathway from bench to bedside. Vicky has a strong background in clinical trial administration and sponsored research coordination, in addition to her clinical and research expertise in audiology.
