Hearing Health Foundation's Hearing Restoration Project (HRP) scientist, Stefan Heller, was published in Cell Reports on June 9, 2015. Heller's lab identified patterns of gene expression that my determine whether the ear's inner pillar cells can give rise to new hair cells, which are key to hearing. This discovery could lead to new ways of evaluating, in animal models, experimental drug treatments intended to prevent hearing loss or restore hearing. Learn more about the HRPHeller's research and the path to a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus.
Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) is excited to announce a new research grants program, focused on advancing our understanding of Ménière's Disease, the inner ear and balance disorder.
HHF is requesting research proposals that will significantly advance our understanding of disease mechanisms, or diagnosis and treatment of Ménière's Disease. Areas of interest include the mechanisms of endolymphatic hydrops including mechanisms of cochlear fluid regulation; genetics; the creation of animal models; vertigo; vestibular migraines; the imaging of hydrops; and etiology, diagnosis, and treatment.
For questions about the application or HHF's research grants programs, please contact grants@hhf.org.
Help us change the course of hearing research and find a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus! Hearing Health Foundation’s “Name a Research Grant” program enables donors to name and fund a specific research grant in their name or in honor or memory of a loved one.
We're currently planning for our 2017 grant cycle. If you're interested in naming a research grant in any discipline within the hearing and balance space, such as Usher Syndrome, hyperacusis, stria, or tinnitus, please contact development@hhf.org

Hearing Health Foundation is thrilled to be named—twice—in Consumer Reports’ “Best Charities for Your Donation,” 

HHF was cited as one of the nation’s five best charities—and the only one twice, in the categories “Blind and Impaired Hearing” and “Health.”

“Collectively, these groups evaluate thousands of nonprofit organizations based on how they collect and spend their money, how transparent they are to the public, and how well they’re governed,” the story says. Read more here.

Children with hearing loss in both ears had improved vocabulary skills if they met all of the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention guidelines, a small cross-sectional study found. Researchers examined a cohort of 448 children with bilateral prelingual hearing loss between 8 and 39 months of age.
For many people, the sound quality and battery life of their devices are often no more than a second thought. But for hearing aid users, these are pivotal factors in being able to interact with the world around them.
