Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
Boston Children's Hospital-Harvard Medical School
Karl Koehler, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Harvard Medical School, a Research Associate in Otolaryngology & Plastic and Oral Surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital, and Principal Investigator in the F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center. He became a tenure-tracked faculty member shortly after completing his Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 2014 at Indiana University School of Medicine. Karl’s early work led to a novel culture system for growing mouse and human inner ear organoids, which his lab now uses to model congenital ear disorders and test gene therapies for hearing restoration. In addition, his group has shown how this unique multi-lineage organoid model can be used to generate hair-bearing skin tissue. Work in the Koehler Lab is funded primarily through grants from the US National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense.
