Listening is in our DNA.
Ακούω in Greek translates to Listen in English. At Akouos (ah KOO ohs), we strive to be a team that listens to one another, to healthcare providers, and to the deaf and hard of hearing (D/HH) community. Our partnerships and collaborations are focused on common goals and predicated on respect, trust, and transparency.
Common Goal Partnerships
In partnering with the D/HH community, we will use the principles outlined here as our guide.
"Hearing loss is one of the greatest challenges in medicine today, and with no FDA-approved pharmacologic therapies available, an area of severe unmet need."
Manny Simons, PhD | Founder and CEO of Akouos
