Research Themes: 

The Communicating Mind and Body

Kelly Tremblay’s research is aimed at improving hearing and communication for people as they age. Dr. Tremblay, a neuroscientist and clinician, uses her knowledge about the aging brain to inform and improve auditory rehabilitation services for older adults. She uses a combination of laboratory and community-based research to address the hearing health of aging individuals in society.  She disseminates this knowledge in many ways, including serving on public and policy advisory boards; such as the World Health Organization and the Hearing Loss Association of America among others.  The National Institutes of Health has consistently funded her work for almost twenty years and she has published approximately 100 manuscripts.  She is a Professor at the University of Washington in Seattle but is also an Affiliate of UBC’s School of Audiology and Speech Sciences.
