Helou Lab Logo
Welcome to the Helou Laboratory for Vocal Systems Anatomy and Physiology Research in the Department of Communication Science and Disorders at the University of Pittsburgh. Led by Dr. Leah B. Helou, the lab engages in both basic and clinical science to ask and answer fundamental questions about mind-voice pathways. 

Our laboratory's vision

To build an unprecedented and data-driven social awareness about the intersection of voice, personal identity, and social goal achievement, while leveraging this information to generate holistic causal models of the pathogenesis and maintenance of functional voice and speech disorders.
