Calling all professionals with experience in tinnitus to register and complete the COMIT'ID online survey!

Prof. Deb Hall and her team at the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre are conducting a world-wide study in collaboration with TINNET Working Group 5.  The COMIT'ID study will aim to improve future tinnitus clinical trials by standardising the way sound-, psychology- and drug-based tinnitus treatments are measured.

The press release for the latest tinnitus project "European School on Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research" is out now.

Inform on http://www.uniklinikum-regensburg.de/service/aktuelles/04999.php about the aims, projects and associated partners of ESIT!

This project offers 15 PhD positions all over Europe in different sciences that will research together to define new knowledge, stadards and solutions in order to help tinnitus patients.
Find these job offer on http://www.esit.tinnitusresearch.net/index.php/job-offers.

This is the first scientific paper that came out of the cooperation between the patient forum TinnitusHub (http://www.tinnitustalk.com) and researchers from TRI and TINNET.

Three large patient samples (total n= 9'600) have been compared: The database of the University Clinic Regensburg, the sample of the TrackYourTinnitus app and the results of a survey on TinnitusTalk. The paper showed significant differences between the three samples with respect to age, tinnitus duration and gender.

The result will guide future studies, improve data sampling and has an important impact on the interpretation of the study results.
