Nicole Boczek, Ph.D., co-director of Mayo Clinic's Genetics and Genomics Laboratory, explains the innovative new hereditary hearing loss panel now available through Mayo Clinic Laboratories. This comprehensive panel analyzes 160 genes associated with hereditary hearing loss, assessing for both nonsyndromic hearing loss, as well as syndromic hearing loss, which can be difficult to recognize clinically.
