Research Area Affiliations
Dr. Hartnick’s primary research interests include the development and maturation of the pediatric vocal fold, pediatric voice disturbances, and pediatric outcomes studies. His research team is actively involved with building an OCT laser microscope to study children’s vocal folds in vivo without biopsying them. The OCT laser microscope began to be used in September 2013 after 5 years of development.
Dr. Hartnick also directs a NIH-funded clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of voice therapy on children with voice disorders. This study is currently three years underway.
