Genetics of Tinnitus: An Emerging Area for Molecular Diagnosis and Drug Development

Antonio Lopez-Escamez et al. There is almost no knowledge at all about the genetics of tinnitus. A very ambitious team of geneticists in the TINNET consortium wants to change this. They have a vision and they have a plan. Read more about their roadmap for a better understanding on the genetics of Tinnitus at http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnins.2016.00377/full

ICRA logoA global language for hearing research

Experts in hearing loss at the University of Nottingham have solved an important conundrum in their field of research – how to accurately translate results from patients’ hearing questionnaires carried out in different languages and cultures across the world.

The team at the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre has led an international project to examine clinical questionnaires and guidelines from non-English speaking hearing research centres and summarise them for the global audiology community. 

The resulting Good Practice Guide produced for the International Collegium of Rehabilitative Audiology (ICRA) and TINnitus NETwork (TINNET) will be a vital tool in helping researchers across the world to compare clinical diagnoses and outcomes of clinical trials. The guidelines were published in the International Journal of Audiology on 21 November 2017.
