Patrick Feeney is an
Associate Professor and Chief of Audiology in the Department of Otolaryngology,
Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Washington. He is also an Adjunct
Professor in the UW Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences. He conducts research
at the Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research
Center. A current research focus
is the application of wideband acoustic transfer functions for the study of
middle-ear function and diagnosis of middle-ear disorders across the life
span. He serves as the Principal
Investigator on an NIH NIDCD grant in collaboration with Douglas Keefe of the
Boys Town National Research Hospital and Lisa Hunter of Cincinnati Children’s
Hospital: 1 R01 DC010202-0, Wideband
clinical diagnosis and monitoring of middle-ear and cochlear function. He is the immediate Past President of
the American Academy of Audiology.
