This project aims to develop a novel, miniaturised and implantable cochlear that closely mimics the human auditory system by utilising advanced microfabrication techniques. This project expects to generate new knowledge in engineering hearing and vestibular hair cells and also on tonotopic organisation of cochlear. Expected outcome of this project include fundamental study of auditory hair cells and development of a novel implantable ear-on-a-chip devices leading to significant scholarly outputs in a disciplinary collaborations with top researchers from Harvard and MIT universities. This project is expected to enable low-cost production of highly engineered implant cochlear with great potential for commercialisation.
