Dr. Li-Jessen’s Voice and Upper Airway (VUA) lab integrates in vitro, in vivo, and in silico (computational) approaches to study laryngeal and upper airway health and diseases. Larynx is critical to our daily breathing, communication, and swallowing functions. The VUA research lab focuses on advancing personalized medicine in voice and upper airway dysfunctions through the development of biological computing, wearable devices, non-invasive diagnostics and injectable biomaterials.
