Voice Collab.AI

VoiceCollab Research Lab

The VoiceCollab Research Lab at USF was created and led by Dr. Yael Bensoussan. This is the first and only Voice Center and research lab of its kind in the area. This lab focuses on voices in research that will improve the standard of care and tools available for clinicians and researchers' generations to come. The VoiceCollab is a collaborative of clinicians and researchers joining forces to contribute to Artificial Intelligence laryngology research and promote application of deep learning models to the laryngology field. It will provide clinicians with a novel tool, the app, that will permit to collect, store, and analyze voice and laryngeal exams to contribute to AI research.

USF Green Auditory Physiology Lab

Auditory Physiology Lab

The mission of the USF Health Auditory Physiology Laboratory is to improve the application of clinical otology and audiology through advanced research of the ear.  With this mission in mind, our laboratory leverage animal models in addition to human participants.

Our laboratory is led by Principal Investigator Jeffery T. Lichtenhan, PhD, who is an experienced researcher that works to identify the origins of physiologic measurements from normal and diseased ears. Physiologic measurements from the ear are routinely used to assess and study hearing in the clinic and in the laboratory. However, these measurements are limited because little has been discovered about their cellular origins and contributing mechanisms.  

Our research uses innovative approaches to address questions related to the origins of objective measurements of hearing in normal and diseased ears.
