    Keith N. Darrow received his clinical degree in Audiology from Brooklyn College and his doctoral degree in Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology from a joint MIT and Harvard Medical School program. His research interest include cochlear physiology and the effect of efferent induced modulation of cochlear responses to sound (see Publications below). Dr. Darrow is also a supervising clinical Audiologist at the Worcester State University Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic. He teaches both graduate and undergraduate courses in Hearing Science, Audiology, Research, and Assessment and Treatment of Balance Disorders.
