Donald Henderson, a professor and leading scientist in UB's Center for Hearing and Deafness, received the 2006 Outstanding Hearing Conservation Award from the National Hearing Conservation Association at its annual conference in Tampa, Fla. According to a UB news release, Henderson has been at the forefront of research to determine how toxins and noise exposure kill hair cells, the inner-ear organs that transmit sound to the brain.
The work of his research group has led to two patents for new drugs to prevent or reverse the damage. He also helped develop a drug the lessens hearing loss from battle noise in tests conducted by the U.S. military.

Bio - Donald Henderson, Ph.D.
Donald Henderson, Ph.D. Professor, Dr. Donald Henderson is a graduate of Western Washington State College and he received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas in 1966. For the last 40 years, he has studied hearing and causes of hearing loss. He has published over 150 articles, edited ten books and has been continuously funded by federal granting agencies since 1968. His current research focus is on the role of free radicals as a factor in hearing loss from noise, drugs and aging. As a corollary, he is also developing pharmacological techniques for preventing hearing loss by using antioxidants or inhibitors of apoptosis (active hair cell death). Dr. Henderson came to UB in 1987 as the Chair of the Department of Communication Disorders and Sciences.

Buffalo, N.Y. -- Donald Henderson, Ph.D. professor in the Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences in the University at Buffalo's College of Arts and Sciences, received the 2006 Outstanding Hearing Conservation Award from the National Hearing Conservation Association at its annual conference in Tampa, Fla.A leading scientist with UB's Center for Hearing and Deafness, Henderson has been at the forefront of international research to determine the biological mechanisms through which toxins and noise exposure kill hair cells, the organs in the inner ear responsible for transmitting sound to the brain's hearing center. This work has led to two patents for new drugs to prevent or reverse the loss. Henderson's research group was the first to show that noise exposure increases the level of oxygen free radicals in the cochlea, which destroy hair cells.The research has shown further that this destruction can be slowed or prevented through two approaches: by conditioning the hair cells to withstand noise, and by using antioxidants to protect the hair cells from free radicals. In conjunction with other colleagues at the center, Henderson has shown that a protein kinase inhibitor developed by David Hangauer, UB associate professor of chemistry, to treat cancer has significant promise to prevent noise-induced hearing loss by blocking hair cell death. Henderson, along with Richard Salvi, professor of communicative disorders and sciences and director of the Center for Hearing and Deafness, was instrumental in arranging an international symposium held last October that focused on major developments in research, treatment and prevention of acquired hearing loss and tinnitus.

Hangauer's protein kinase inhibitors also are showing significant promise in preventing noiseinduced hearing loss in collaborative research with Donald Henderson, Ph.D., professor in the UB Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences and director of UB's Center for Hearing and Deafness, and Nicotera, who is adjunct associate professor in the same department.
