Jason Tait Sanchez, Ph.D., CCC-A, is an assistant professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University. Dr. Sanchez earned his doctorate in auditory neuroscience from Kent State University, a master's degree in audiology from Michigan State University and a bachelor's degree in communication sciences and disorders from the University of Northern Colorado.
Dr. Sanchez was clinically trained in audiology at the Cleveland Clinic and completed postdoctoral training in developmental auditory neurobiology at the University of Washington. Dr. Sanchez's research investigates how developmental mechanisms give rise to the precise encoding of sound in the auditory brainstem.
It is Dr. Sanchez's hope that an in-depth understanding of auditory brainstem development may guide requirements for cochlear implant and hearing aid design and potentially provide pharmacological targets to improve pathologies of the auditory system.
