Developments in Genetic Hearing Impairment. Edition No. 1

  • ID: 2222955
  • Book
  • April 1998
  • 200 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd
This book comprises the first volume of a series which reports the outcomes of the European Union Concerted Action Programme on Genetic Hearing Impairment. The aim is to bring together clinical geneticists and audiologists, as well as basic scientists and other clinicians with a general interest in this field, to standardise the audiological and terminological approaches and publish state of the art interdisciplinary studies.
